    Antique Caucasian Kuba rug. This is a very rare and early example of an antique Kuba rug woven in the first half of the 19th Century. Features twin pairs of birds that form star-like gul clusters on aubergine-brown background. Interesting meandering flower inner border. 11 tribal animal motifs placed amongst the interspersed field elements.
