Here we have a hand-knotted Kuba Azerbaijan rug dating back to between 1850 and 1880. This attractive Kuba, with significant age, captures the essence of a bygone era, showcasing the artistry and craftsmanship of the weavers from this region.
The 'snowflake' design or pattern, a distinguishing feature of this rug, adds a touch of sophistication. The Kufesque border, beautifully drawn and rendered, reflects the influence of early Arabic calligraphy, offering a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage that inspires this piece. The dye quality and weave suggest a pre-commercial period, placing it in a time when craftsmanship prevailed over mass production. The warm colors, meticulously chosen and expertly woven, evoke a sense of warmth and richness, inviting you to experience the luxury of a bygone era.
Versatile in its use, this Kuba rug is not confined to the floor. Its exquisite artistry makes it a wonderful candidate for hanging on a wall. Whether used as intended on the floor or displayed as a decorative wall hanger, this hand-knotted Kuba Azerbaijan rug is a testament to the enduring legacy of craftsmanship and artistic expression. Embrace the allure of the past and bring a touch of antique sophistication into your home with this exceptional piece.
It is in decent vintage condition, given its age. It does show some wear, including some on the edges, a few small rips, and some color fading here and there. We've tried to include photos of this issue, but if you'd like more or have questions, please let us know. Please note that the last two photos of the rug were taken on a different-colored floors (photos are from two different homes, we moved), and so the colors are still accurate in the photos.
Measures about 62 inches long and 39 inches wide.
