Antique Shirvan rug

circa 1910
161 × 113 cm 5’3” x 3’8”


A wonderful tribal Antique Shirvan rug in good original condition, showing the intact fringes and lovely natural dyes.  Woven with a rare ivory background colour, the vibrant pale blues and yellows with reds bring a lot of life to this antique caucasian rug.  We love the simple all over geometric design with lattice pattern.  Classic caucasian rug border and wonderful dyes.  As this is a tribal Caucasian rug dating from around 1910, it is not perfectly symmetrical or straight, as it was woven on a loom in the ground.  The weaver would often travel and take the loom up and move, hence these rugs are never perfect in shape or size.  In honest original condition, and full of charm and character.

Shirvan is a region of Azerbaijan in the southeastern Caucasus. With the exception of a group of rugs woven in the vicinity of Baku, most Shirvans are generally found in small sizes, with examples from the southern part of the area around the town of Saliani more likely to be in the long, narrow format described in the West as runners.
