 An Antique Karabagh design from the  late 19th c.- early 20th century with latch-hook diamond pattern and cruciform border. The eye-dazzler effect radiating outward from the four diamond medallions is notewothy.The two narrow bands of analine purple (that have since faded) seem to form a mihrab in the directional use as a prayer rug.We have found this practice on a few Shirvans we have seen, but this is the first Karabagh that thus seems directional.   There is a definate Borchalou Kazak cross influence in the design elements of the diamond medallions in the field( See plate 39 & 44 of Ian Bennett's "Oriental Rugs" Vol.1 - Caucasian"). A rug very similar to our rug is found in the Karabagh section of the same book at plate 116.  There is very good pile throughout and no holes or patches . There is a 2" fold wear on the lower left side seen in photo #8.  Photo #12 shows that the narrow red guard border is darker on the back than the front and is sun fade, not color run. There are also corrosive browns that nicely emboss 3 of the 4 diamond medallions.   An interesting aside is that Navajo weavers were shown these types of Caucasian & Anatolian rugs by the Southwestern Trading Post owners at the turn of the century and were asked to use them for inspiration for their now famous "Eye -Dazzler" rugs.
