Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

The designs of Caucasian carpets of the late classical period developed from earlier Safavid and Ottoman carpet models. This example includes palmettes and medallions which clearly have earlier antecedents, intermingled with multiple minor motifs which are typical of later 19th century Caucasian weavings. This example is notable for its joyful use of colour.
