Antique Flat Weave Soumak Caucasian Dragon Rug Carpet

Lot 0154 Details

Description
Size: 6 ft 6 in x 7 ft 7 in (1.98 m x 2.31 m) - Late 19th Century -This unique and fascinating antique Oriental rug -- an antique Silii (or Zili) Soumak, originally hand made in the Caucuses some time during the latter years of the nineteenth century -- is a beautiful and intriguing piece that showcases many of the qualities and characteristics most desirable in such pieces, all while maintaining a profound individuality. Broad geometric motifs woven in alternating shades of blue and ivory decorate the bold red field of this colorful rug. A series of secondary protection symbols occupy the negative space between the hooks while ladder edges and secondary symbols define each large-scale figure. All in all, this antique rug is something truly special, and would certainly bring as much beauty, sophistication and elegance to a home of today as it would have brought upon its initial weaving, so long ago.
