Antique Moghan or Kazak Caucasian rug

559. Provenance: Moghan, Talish, or Kazak, Azerbaijan, The Caucasus

Age: Circa 1920

Size: 210 x 120 cm

Condition: Mostly good for age. Just minor losses at one end and corner.

Notes: A dllightful design  of three stepped diamond medallions containing a variety of tribal motifs. The understated minimalist simplicity of drawing for which good Caucasians are famed. Soft, natural dyes (mostly) with wonderful abrush (varation in colour due to changes in dye batches and density fluctuations of handspun wool).
