Antique Pastel and jewel toned Caucasian soumak area rug

Antique Caucasian Soumak - 5'1 x 7'6

Regular price $1,750.00 Sale

Caucasian Soumak rug, handwoven during the first quarter of the 20th century. 

This unusual Soumak is pieced together in variety of intersecting shapes in faded blues,greens, corals, yellow and ivory. The haphazard shapes appear to be an attempt at the famous “dragon” design” which went awry. Three ivory palmettes really pop in the field drawing the eye and brightening the rug. The main border features a pinwheel of four serrated leaves alternating with rosette filled diamonds.

In good condition, worn to the wool pile in areas throughout as pictured. Flatwoven, with a solid handle.
