671. a vibrant antique Lesghi Caucasian rug

Antique Lesghi Caucasian Rug

671. Provenance: Lesghi (Leshkey), Shirvan, The Caucasus

Size: 250 x 133 cm

Age: Circa 1920

Condition: Very good for age.

Notes: Vigorous colouring, with bold use of an analine orange, as well as more subtle natural dyes such as indigo (in various alluring shades). The inner-outer Lesghi Star motif is a sort of rectangular versian of the Chelaberd Alder Eagle, and is used to good effect in this piece (they can be somewhat 'muddy' depending on colour use). Great hand-spun wool, and a wealth of tribal motifs, and even animals. A lovely, collectable piece.
