Shirvan, Eastern Caucasus
This rug is an early example of the so-called 'flower Shirvans' as illustrated in the late Ian Bennet's 'Caucasian Rugs' pages 206 & 207. Most of the 'flower Shirvans' have a dark indigo-blue field whereas this rug has an unusual madder-red field. It has, what I feel, is a very old back, and to this end, as many were attributed to the early to third quarter 19th century, I am happy to label this beautiful rug to the mid 19th century. I love the early rendition of a Kufic border and, at the bottom of the rug where the weaver started knotting, the incorporation of a very thin minor red line only after she reached the top of the main border! This is a truly beautiful rug and I am pleased to present it to you now.
Size: 1.70m x 1.04m (5' 7" x 3' 5").

Antique Prayer Rug, Gendje, Eastern Caucasus
Here we have an unusual prayer rug from Gendje in the eastern Caucasus, made around 1860-1870 with an ivory mihrab and minimal use of small stylised flowers. The field design below the prayer niche has a typical Gendje design comprising small 'hook' symbols on diagonal bands. The main border too, is stunning, and comprises family unity symbols in wonderful shades of natural-dye colours. All in all, this is one of the most beautiful examples of Gendje rugs I've ever come across and I love the small size of 1.45m x 0.82m (4' 9" x 2' 8").

Antique Moghan Rug, South-Eastern Caucasus
This stunning rug - assigned to the Moghan region, is more probably of Armenian origin. It is full of interesting creatures - bird, animal and human! Have a look at the close-up photos for some gorgeous details. The abrash in the indigo-blue field is superb. I love this blue with its wondeful striation of colour. The rug has just returned from cleaning and the colours are glowing. I love this rug!

Antique Akstafa Rug, Eastern Caucasus
Here we have a fabulous Akstafa rug dated 1303 in the Islamic calendar - 1886 in the solar calendar.
The rug has all vegetable colours and is in excellent condition, albeit requiring a good wash! Rugs from the Akstafa region are normally longer in size whereas this one is shorter - in fact a much better size for western homes. The myriad of stylised creatures is extremely charming - the large scale 'peacocks' depicted down both sides of the blue field is a characteristic of Akstafa rugs.
Size: 2.36m x 1.30m (7' 9" x 4' 3").

Antique Akstafa Prayer-Rug, Eastern Caucasus
This beautiful, early Akstafa prayer-rug from the eastern Caucasus was made around 1860. The rug is in very good condition with a few very minor areas of re-knotting near the original selvedges and a very small 'ruck' line which is easily repaired after the rug has a stretch. The dyes are all natural and the pile good all-over.
A very collectable rug of the type.
Size: 1.70m x 0.82m (5' 7" x 2' 8").

Rare Shirvan Mat, Eastern Caucasus
