Object Description

This handsome Shirvan dates back to 1880.  The artistic drawing is well-balanced considering its small format.

The muted grey colour field is a great contrast to the array of vegetable-dyed colours which include:  soft red, light blue and ivory.  It is framed by a wide border.  The high-density knots engender the clarity of the crisp drawing.

An exquisite example that stands out from other traditional examples.

Object History

Antique Shirvan rugs are one of the most sought-after pieces from the Caucasus. They are highly decorative rugs with a formality and stylistic complexity setting them apart from other rugs of the region.

Object Condition

This early Shirvan rug is in well-preserved condition for everyday day use.  There is some very minor age-related wear that serves to add charm and character.
