Fine Antique Zeikor Russain Rug, Hand Knotted, Circa 1890
Antique Russian and Caucasian rugs originate from a large and diverse area of the world. the multicultural background of the region is uniquely reflected in the look and feel of the antique textiles originating from this region. while russia covers a massive area filled with many ethnicities and cultures, the caucasus region may be even more so. bordered by russia, turkey, and iran, all of these rug-producing countries have influenced the design and style of our antique russian and caucasian rugs.
The Caucasian carpets are from the areas south, east and north of the mountain chain of the Caucasus.
Carpets, made before 1925, can be divided into five groups namely; Kazak, Karabach, Sjirvan, Kuba and Dagestan carpets. The carpets from the Karabach area often have finer patterns and resemble Persian carpets. Outside these groupings there are also Gjandzja, Silé and Verni carpets.
The significance of these beautiful carpets are their geometrical patterns, often with an imaginative and plentiful way of expression. Sometimes curvilinear animal and pattern figures occur in the carpets.
