This Karadja rug was woven in northwest Iran during the early 20th century. It features a classic geometric design for type with three vertically arranged medallions. The top and bottom medallions are known as the 'abyss' motif, an ancient design that represents deep waters. The central medallion is a diamond with hooked appendage. The main border is of alternating palmettes. The color palette is made up of deep blues, full reds, and soft pinks. Ivories and browns add detail to design. The pile is low and densely woven. In mint condition, with no signs of wear.
