An Antique Kuba rug with stunning colours from the late 19th century, the design in the main field is known as the mother and daughter ‘Boteh’ motifs.  The border is full of interesting bird motifs full of colour!  The weaver of this vibrant and interesting antique caucasian rug wove it with masses of charm and interest.  Using the mother and daughter ‘Boteh’ design which is a small baby ‘Boteh’ inside a larger ‘Boteh’.  The colours are true to the age of this rug, dating from the late 19th century.  The pile is nice and soft on this rug, with original pale blue side-cords both ends have have had some restoration of about 2-3 cm’s rewoven.  We can see some corrosion to the brown/black dyes too, a good indicator of the rugs age.
