3'7" x 6'8" Antique Caucasian Akstafa Shirvan Rug, Circa 1890



Among the least frequently seen types of Caucasian rugs from the last quarter of the 19th century rugs are those from the village of Akstafa in the Shirvan district of the northeast Caucasus, located to the west of the Caspian Sea.

Frequently long and narrow, Akstafa rugs generally feature stylized birds. The denim blue field color of this example is uncommon.

Old areas of restoration with small bits of foundation showing in various areas.

Priced "as is" but we can do restoration for the buyer at additional cost.

Acquired directly from an outstanding New England family collection.
