Antique Russian Karabakh

A particularly beautiful rug of about 1880 from the Karabakh area of the Southern Caucasus. While clearly of Persian inspiration, the juxtaposition of a pinkish red with a madder red, dark blue, bottle green and yellow is typical of older Armenian Karabakh weavings.
A reference to this rug can be found in Essie's book "Persian Rugs and Carpets, The Fabric of Life" on page 413 plate 336.
