43827 Antique Karabagh, Caucasus, late nineteenth century - A highly abstract composite medallion with finials sits within a warm ivory field on this virtually one-of-a kind antique Karabagh. Similar medallions hover above and below the central one with a array of stylized vines and tiny animals filling the areas in between. Multiple narrow borders combine to frame the field. The range and depth of the color is outstanding, but perhaps the most unusual feature of this extraordinary piece is way that the borders indent slightly to make space for the central medallion, imparting a dynamic elasticity to the overall design.
