The rich indigo navy field displays five stepped guls in green,soft madder red,navy and brown. The devices are well drawn. Small animals,combs,colour samplers and hooked lozenges fill the field interstices. The main ivory border shows the square Kurdish Kazak version of the " crab " design with details in various reds,green,teal,sand and navy.
The influence of the nearby Caucasus is apparent in the abstract geometric field pattern. The straw-sand inner border with simple reversing palmettes is more rustically Persia nite. All the dyes are of natural origin.
The warp mixes cotton and wool,and there is a single weft between knot rows.There is end reduction and significant spot wear,but the piece is charming and authentic.This rug has been cleaned professionally.For more information please email us or call us at 212-268-5876.
