3’ 10”x 7’ 6” An early 20th century Caucasian Karabagh area rug in a floral pattern in green, black, pink, and red colors. The Karabagh (black garden in the Azari language) rugs from the Southern Caucasus region are known for their “impressionistic” design and use of bright colors in “weaving” a bouquet of flowers. The rug has a black field color with flower bouquets forming the border. Like the paintings of the French impressionist painter Monet, looking at the design, it looks like colors varying depending on the time of the day and the light.
