Description
Caucasian, Sumack, Sumac 173 x 108cm
Antique pre 1900 Sumack rug from Caucasus region in blue with wear

This is a rare and extremely attractive pre-1900 antique Caucasian Sumack/ Sumac measuring 173 x 108cm (5.7'x3.5'). The design is based on three hexagonal shaped medallions all decorated with geometric and floral motifs in an eye-catching sky blue field and similar Ivory borders. Sumack flat weave rugs are quite sought after and it is a rare occurrence to find small pieces like the one on offer in fairly good condition. Although there are areas of wear and few re-piling, the general condition of the rug is not bad in particular its borders and end kilims which are original.
