Shipping to United States: Free


This all wool carpet is a primitive nomadic hand knotted piece made in the Caucus mountain region near Azerbaijan.
It is very old, ( last quarter of the 19th century) and worn.

Truly beautiful organic dyes that include bright blue, mustard yellow, red in shades from chocolate cherry to brick to red-orange, teal, pink, black, and ivory. It is in original condition with just the ends being secured a long time ago.

The wool is still soft and supple, pile ranges from medium to threadbare. The 3 inch wide guard surrounding the field of red has the most wear and has 4 very worn areas that could be secured. ( either professionally-expensive or with simple sowing, iron on tape, glued paper, burlap.

I have left the rug as is with it’s imperfections as some collectors have these restored.

The rug shows a very free artistic sensibility, compare the blue and red “ double fence “ border to a more refined Caucasian such as a Shirvan. With the worn areas secured, this is a dynamic, exciting rug for years to come. Convo me for more pictures or questions. It is priced to allow repairs.
