Soumakh embroidered carpet
306 x 203cm

Origin  The Caucasus
Age Late 19th century
SOLD
Info  I have always had a soft spot for old Caucasian soumakhs, but they are very hard to find these days. This one has some lovely colours - I particularly like the yellow border - and a good, well-spaced composition. Woven in the soumakh technique, the carpet has a flat-woven, embroidered front. Worn in places, but nicely so, the soumakh has been expertly cleaned and its ends and sides have been secured. It dates from the late 19th century.
