Description: Antique Caucasian Kuba/ Shirvan rug

This rug was woven in the eastern Caucasus mountains by an Azerbaijan weaver in the area of Ugah, Kuba/  Zaghly, Shirvan.  It is a 19th century piece which embodies the design and weaving techniques of both the Kuba and the Shirvan Caucasus regions. These pieces were known for their natural camel colored and robins egg blue blossoms arranged diagonally across an Indigo background.   These colors are repeated in alternating border stripes and a wonderful, unique Shirvan wide border of the Huryuk , Horme Naqish (braid)  alternating design. These rugs were woven very thinly to allow the nomadic tribe to easily fold it and transport it for nomadic seasonal migrations.  It was not made for the tourist market, but for tribal use.  To see it is to see a real collectible antique piece.  Its’ antique condition is very good with almost totally intact pile, sides, and ends.

This is a wonderful one of a kind piece that can be used on the floor for many decades to come.
