408. a splendid antique Kuba Caucasian rug

Antique Kuba Caucasian rug

408. Provenance: Kuba, Azerbaijan/Dagestan, The Caucasus

Age: Circa 1900

Condition: Overall low pile and areas of wear.

Notes:  A dark indigo field full of Turkoman-like guls, surrounded by a 'running oak-leaf' guard, and an interesting main border on white, with a curious running 'bird-tail' and flower design. A wonderful light duck-egg blue makes brief appearances, and there are plently of mini flowers in the main field. Despite the age-related condition, a collectable piece.
