Antique Azerbaijan Caucasian Long Rug, early nineteenth century - Many antique Northwest Persian village rugs are closely related to weaving from further north in the Caucasus, like this stunning example. The field consists of a serrated leaf lattice linked by rosettes, with smaller geometricized floral motifs inside the lattice compartments. The border, made up of double serrated leaves and rosettes is also based on the helical garland border of Chi-chi Kuba rugs of the Caucasus. However, the weave, the yellow ground, and the relative freedom of the drawing are distinctively Northwest Persian. An exciting piece, it may have been woven by Kurds. The large scale open design and the use of saffron yellow converge and make this one of the most fantastic runners in today's market.
