This elegant east Caucasian Kuba rug draws a distinctively Karagashli take on the classic Caucasian ‘afshan’ floral design. Curvilinear diamond-pointed foliage painted in deep ruby-red and lined with sea-green and white floats against an indigo ground. Lilies are paired horizontally in rows, abstracted to evoke the local drawing of birds in profile. Along the central axis, a column of white stars and boxed ornament shines from the deep field culminating at a date panel reading 1312, or the Western year 1894/5. Interestingly, this panel is woven upside-down, perhaps an attempt to insure the integrity of the inscription.
