This graphic Karabagh rug shares a striking aesthetic affinity with pieces of the Caucasian Kazak variety. Color is vivid and saturated and the wool used soft and and lustrous. The reciprocal trefoil borders as well as the main border, which uses a repeat geometric element against an ivory ground, are features shared with Kazak weaving groups. The field draws a solitary column of colorful ‘Memling guls’ against a brick-madder ground. The balance of blues and greens with tones of red is perfect. Spacing is open creating a bold but happy aesthetic.
Very good condition. No restoration.
