565. a self-assured Karabagh Caucasian runner

Antique Karabagh Caucasian runner

565. Provenance: Karabagh, Southern Azerbaijan

Size: 330 x 110 cm

Age: Circa 1910

Condition: Generally good for age.

Notes: Many Karabaghs show a marked European influence, and this was perhaps made for the European market, with somewhat realistic bunches of flowers that are almost reminiscent of French Aubusson carpets. The colour scheme of this piece however calls to mind many Turkish pieces of the turn of the century. This is a bold piece, very sure of its own identity!
