19) Early yellow ground Caucasian rug


The tribal and village rug design repertoire contains an aesthetic spectrum ranging from the bold and powerful to the subtle and elegant. This piece leans decidedly towards the latter aesthetic. Featuring an allover field design seen commonly in Caucasian and Kurdish rugs, the precision of the drawing, the soft color palette, and the uncommon secondary border set this piece apart from later, more generic examples of its type.
