This stunning antique Caucasian Dagestan rug was woven in the mid 19th Century. Features a honeycomb lattice design enclosing intricately woven and colorful shrub and flower motifs flanked by an ivory border with hexagonal lozenges. It exhibits curvature to field and unequal minor borders, hallmarks of a tribal weaving. Some field motifs appear three dimensional and the coloration is brilliant and deeply saturated. Beautiful floor rug.
