Northeast Caucasian Antique Rug
3' 6" x 5' 11" (107cm x 180cm) Late 19th Century
Price upon request
This free-form antique Kuba exemplifies the individuality of artistic expression that is so prized among rugs of the Caucasus. An allover pattern of palmettes asymmetrically aligned to the bottom portion of the field abruptly changes to compartmentalized rows of hexagonal medallions, naively rendered with great charm and verve. Changing back again to the original design, a dramatic shift of color enhances the improvisational effect. Tribal rugs, with such apparent disregard for conventional formatting, provide a precious testament to an unfettered lifestyle and are highly sought after by some collectors, especially when they are in the outstanding condition of this 140-year-old piece.
