Antique Caucasian soumak carpet of three medallion design with scarce yellow border.
 
Circa 1870 or earlier.
 
This soumak is of the classic three medallion format, with two blue medallions and a soft green medallion in the centre. Each medallion contains an octogen with a classic detailed design within. The soft abrashed red field is covered with tribal design elements such as 'everlasting knots', 'floral rosettes' and flower heads. Instead of the usual small octogens in the field along side the medallions this example has a box design filled with the 'S' device. The soumak has superb colour and includes a soft green and yellow that is found in the earliest examples, in particular the outstanding border. Note the original braided finishes at both ends, these show some wear and a few losses.
 
The soumak is in good condition with even wear and a few scattered spots of heavier wear, there is slight damage to the lower left hand corner. (we would be happy to quote for full restoration).
 
The soumak is suitable for light domestic use.
 
The soumak has been hand washed and is ready for use or display.
 
This is a truly outstanding soumak that would grace any room.
