Unusual Talish Long Rug

Unusual Talish Long Rug

This is a very beautiful and elegant Caucasian rug from the Talish district of the East Caucasus. 19th century Talish rugs are known for their fine weave and the plain abrashed fields, the so-called Mete Hane design, normally in a sapphire blue. This piece however, has a charming aquamarine central field filled with a pretty repeating floral design. The borders are the typical borders one associates with Talish rugs. The main ivory border filled with repeating roundels is ubiquitous, as well as the minor guard stripes. Dating this rug has been helped by the use of both a lovely organic purple and fuchsine, which one can comfortably date in the last quarter of the 19th century. The texture is thin and fine. One can say this piece has great presence. In generally good condition, retaining its original ends and selvages. Professionally cleaned and ready for immediate use.
