Take a trip back in time to discover the rustic beauty of this antique 1880s Caucasian rug. This wonderful piece features four poled medallions at its center, each one expertly crafted with its own unique design and intricate detailing. Surrounding the medallions are a ram’s horn motif that symbolizes fertility, heroism, power and masculinity. A playful rugpin stripe border band adds depth and texture framing this lovely rug perfectly.
Handwoven by Caucasus Mountain weavers with vegetable dyed wool on a wool foundation, the color story carries a life force that will capture the imagination and inspire action. The skinny dimensions make it special and great for those spots demanding that size. While the rug may show some signs of wear, it also boasts a history and personality that is impossible to replicate in a new rug. Each worn patch tells a story of the rug's past, adding immense character to its design. This beauty has had a good life, but has a lot of life to go. Will be shipped with a rug pad on the house.
