Gorgeous antique Karaja rug with an unusual yellow border in fantastic condition. The central medallion is more often seen on Caucasian rugs known as Chelaberd and display the "sun-burst" design. This shows how weavers would have travelled from Persia to Azerbaijan, Caucasus and taken influences from such weavings. This is why antique rugs have so much history and character and add just that to a room.

A wonderful array of colours make this a vibrant tribal rug, the green eight-pointed stars at either end in the main field are lovely and mellow colours. The pile on this rug is very good with no damage and in general excellent condition.

Antique Karaja rugs were woven in a village in the northeast of the Heriz region of Persia, not far from the Azerbaijan Border. Their designs generally consisted of 8 pointed star motifs like this piece as well as weaving in animals and people which adds great interest. The sun-burst design is not uncommon or they would weave a more geometric central motif known as a latch-hook design.
Fantastic condition.
