This long Caucasian Derbend corridor carpet makes use of a design more typically seen in smaller Shirvan rugs. Drawn in large spacious rows against a sky-blue ground abstracted coiled foliage is rendered in a stylized geometric manner flanking several varieties of diamond latch-hook devices. Influence may be seen from neighboring Northwest Persia as well with the 'harshang' or crab border. This piece was most likely woven as a special commission. A small but illegible inscription is woven in the top left-hand side of the upper border. To be sold on behalf of a Texas collector
