Inspiring 1920s Authentic Handmade Vintage Shirvan
Charming Antique Authentic Handmade Vintage Lezgi Star Shirvan. Made of all natural, vegetable dye, hand woven, finest worsted wool pile on cotton foundation. This is just a captivating Shirvan design plus a charming color combination. The art of carpet weaving in the Karabak, Shirvan territory is undoubtedly influenced by a number of objective factors, among them the geographical location of this region, at the joint of the east and the west. Here, along the greater Caucasus ridge, lies the borderline between Asia and Europe. Here is the historical juxtaposition point between Islamic and Christian cultures. Many long caravans passed through this territory over the centuries up until the middle of the 20th century. Charming and happy colors are one of the characteristic of Shirvan rugs. Please notice the stylized broken leaves and wine glass design in the primary border. Also please notice the stylized running dogs around the periphery of the multiple medallions. This lovely Shirvan has a couple of old repairs.
