An Afghan Shirvan Rug hand knotted in lustrous wool by Afghan weavers. The rug features a large star medallion and two lozenge central medallions, surrounded by geometric flowers and leaves and further lozenge patterns in the borders. Deep blue, rich red, cream, pink and turquoise colours add warmth and vibrancy to the piece.
Afghan Shirvan Rugs are descendants of Caucasian Shirvan Rugs from hundreds of years ago. Their designs are similar to their Caucasian parent pieces but with more spacing between the motifs. Woven by expert weavers, this rug is soft underfoot and has high levels of durability. The rug is in very good overall condition, with fringe securing work required on both fringe ends, as well as professional cleaning. This will be completed before delivery.
This Afghan Shirvan Rug is a striking and versatile addition to modern and classic decors. The rug would take pride of place in living rooms, bedrooms and dining rooms.
