This long Caucasian Derbend corridor carpet makes use of a design more typically seen in smaller Shirvan rugs. Drawn in large spacious rows against a sky-blue ground abstracted coiled foliage is rendered in a stylized geometric manner flanking several varieties of diamond latch-hook devices. Influence may be seen from neighboring Northwest Persia as well with the 'harshang' or crab border. This piece was most likely woven as a special commission. A small but illegible inscription is woven in the top left-hand side of the upper border. To be sold on behalf of a Texas collector.
Very good condition. Very minimal localized wear and one area of reknotting. Original selvedges and macrame end finish at one end are intact. No end border loss at the other end.
