Gendje rug (155) (437)

Gendje long rug from southern Caucasus

Age: circa 1880

Dimensions: 8'.7"x3'.8" (262x112 cm)

Unlike many Gendje rugs,this piece does not have a dominant yellow,but the dynamic diagonal stripe array is preserved,this time in ivory and navy blue.The precise field seems to lie beneath the borders,highlighted by a green outer stripe and a slightly wider red main band with simple rosettes.The lazy "S" field pattern derives from brocaded Persian textiles.The high pile combines with a soft texture to give a strong tactile effect.The wool is soft and the handle is pliable.All the colors are from natural sources.Condition is good with all sides and ends original.
