The dark blue field with a column of terracotta conjoined hexagonal medallions flanked by half medallions all with plants, flower heads and animals, within an ivory border enclosing continuous star flower heads linked by angular vines.

The reverse knotting detail indicates that this runner is of the origin as stated in the Guarantee Line. Caucasian weavings display rectilinear drawn flora and fauna forms with motifs often totemic in appearance. The composition is typically Karabakh in style and displays iconography also associated with Kurdish weavings from Northwest Persia. The colors are from a traditional regional palette, the tones of which suggest that this runner was probably woven around the date as indicated. There is evidence of wear, as advised, and there are losses to end outer guard borders. The valuation reflects the condition as presented.

Care Instructions

Vacuuming regularly means you won’t have to get it professionally cleaned as often and it will definitely look nicer and last longer. For best results, vacuum front and back side of rug, from side to side, avoiding fringes.  


Avoid spills, but if they do occur, blot them immediately with a paper towel, then spray water on the spot of the spill and blot again, and repeat as needed. Spray white vinegar on pet urine to help break down the enzymes that cause the bad odour.

Professional Rug Cleaning:

When needed, get your area rug cleaned. Otherwise, the dirt begins to grind, which is extremely damaging to the materials. The usual time to have your rug professionally cleaned is about 5 years, but you should trust your instincts. When your rugs appear to require cleaning, follow your instincts and have them washed. Hand knotted carpets should never be dry cleaned or steam cleaned.  Wall to wall carpet cleaning companies are usually not a good option.  Always choose professional rug cleaner who specialises in cleaning fine, handwoven carpets.

Rug Pads:

Using a rug pad with your vintage rug will extend its life and provide extra traction and protection for your floors. More info
