3′ 10″ x 6′ 9″      Beautiful Caucasian Kazak area rug in a geometric pattern from the Shirvan village of Azarbaijan circa late 1800s.  The design is set in a dark blue abrash color field with geometric designs in rows throughout.  There is a red band on one of the rugs which is the "abrash" result of the use of natural vegetable dyes which overtime gradually age and develop a patina.  This is a sought after effect that shows the creative process in making this wonderful village woven art.
