We think the groom looks happier than the bride! A really beautiful antique piece which would add charm and interest to an entrance hall for example. The kelim fringes are still showing and original as our the side-cords too, we need to tidy both of them up which our restorer we will do very soon making it ready for the floor.
These pieces were woven in the south-west of Azerbaijan, an area that produced these unusual long corridor carpets. Carpet weaving grew in the 2nd half of the 19th century as the commercial market demanded exciting, bold flamboyant pieces for the West. Caucasian rugs are famous for their vivid colours and geometric designs.
