Antique runner, 120 - 100 years old
Usually the carpets from the Caucasus have something magical - and this one is no exception.
The diagonal stripes on the edge - called caper stick bands - are typical for the Kuba area.
5 octagons on an indigo blue field with beautiful abrash.
Natural colours were used to dye the wool.
Tomato red, indigo blue, light blue, and white.
The plants - 3 in a row - aren't actually plants, it's Simorgh, the mythical fire bird.
On the top side of the carpet is a quarter of a medallion which runs outside of the image, to illustrate that time is finite.
Soft wool, falls smoothly.
The edges could be festooned again.
Moreover, there's a bit of wear on the edge.
In the centre, between the octagons, the three Simorghs have a bit wear to them.
Pretty clean, doesn't need to be washed, but possible when desired for an additional fee of €70.
