Item Details

A Caucasian area rug. This wool rug is hand-knotted in a palette of camel, taupe, crimson, mocha, and cream. It begins with a trefoil lozenge, which contains three octagonal medallions, each seeded with a cross shape at the center, surrounded by in-pointing arrows, the lozenge resting on a crimson field. Filler motifs in the lozenge and field include geometric florets, combs, stars, and octagons. Framing the field are compound borders, including a primary border featuring stepped stars enclosing segmented diamonds. The primary border is flanked by thin barber pole minor borders and two wider Ghiordes double-S patterned borders over mocha and taupe. Selvedges are double overcast, the rug finishing at either end with brown wool warp fringe that may include goat hair. The rug is unlabeled.
