Antique Shirvan Caucasian Carpet / 4'4"x5'6" / 133x168cm

Antique Shirvan Caucasian Carpet / 4'4"x5'6" / 133x168cm


Absolute jewel. Antique 100 year old carpet with two large white rams’ horn hooked medallions against a rich black (with some lovely brown abrash) ground. A garden of flowers fills the empty spaces, blooming free form all over the carpet. Small houses and animals are also dotted in. A funky variation of the classic white-ground sawtooth border animates.

Shirvan was founded by the Safavid Empire and has deep Persian roots. Now in Azerbaijan and Daghestan (Russia) Shirvan rugs are beloved and collected for their colors, fine weaving, and Persian-style designs with a greater freedom than a palace or urban-style Persian carpet.

In excellent condition. Supple hand.
