3.4 x 4.10 Antique Caucasian Shirvan Rug, Lesghi Star design, circa 1900
The Leshgi Star design is one of the most recognizable motifs favored by weavers in the Caucasus. It is most closely associated with rugs from the Kuba district but this example has the lighter handle and white cotton selvedge which suggests it was woven just south in the Shirvan district.
This Lesghi Star design rug has nice character and a wide ranging palette. The ivory crab border frames the blue field well.
It retains what appears to be the original selvedge and end finish. Generally low pile; oxidized browns; minor wear; minor damage which can be restored.
