Description

From the same private collection as the rare green antique Karachopt rug Ref: 7886, we have this unusual design example with lush red dyes and green medallion.  We see striking design elements from rugs of Sewan Kazak’s with the curling hook motifs from the medallion in varying colours, the ivory four corner motifs are typical of Karchov rugs.  Traditional blue border and madder red dyes, with subtle abrash dye changes throughout.

. . .

In general brilliant condition, with some preservation restoration in places.  A rare and collectable Caucasian rug.

Woven in the Caucasus mountains in Azerbaijan by Armenian weavers.  Also known as “Karachopf or Karachopt” these tribal weavings were made using soft wool on a woollen foundation, giving them a light feel to touch and handle.  The bold geometric motifs and format of this rug are typical of rugs from this region with the four latch-hook motifs in each corner of the main design and a white central motif surrounded by the speckled dots.

The variety of colours are exquisite and due to the rugs age have a great soft appeal to the eye. Coming from a private collection it has been well looked after and used on the floor, so we do have minimal wear.  For comparison Sothebys sold a rare green Karachopf in 2014 for around £35,000 or 43,750 USD, an older version of this antique Caucasian Karachopf we are offering here but showcases their value.  Click here.
