3'3 x 5'3 Antique Caucasus Rug #2743 / Small Vintage Rug

Regular price $1,150.00

Flashing at you is a vibrant yellow-gold antique rug, woven by nomads in the Caucasus mountains in the late 19th Century. This little being packs a lot of punch, featuring an energetic color palette and wonderful, tribal art. With small scale art throughout, this scatter rug has great composition and plentiful motifs that speak a lot of culture and history.

In the field, we see what we believe are eagle motifs amongst the pinwheels of life. The inner and out band edge guard is the fence of security motif and they say it represents what is most valuable to us, that is, life, and that it must be protected.

This spirited rug has a low wool pile with saturated, natural dyes. One part on the corner was masterfully rewoven to restore the rug. You can see the variance/difference in the dye color, as it is so difficult to replicate old world, vegetable dyes. Someone with skillful hands gave this a lot of love to preserve it.

Other colors include Indian orange, dark space blue, hunter green, ivory, brick orange, dark sailor blue, deep terracotta clay, and oxford blue.

Hand knotted with vegetable dyed wool, on a sturdy cotton foundation. From the 1880s.
