Name: MAYBE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RUNNER EVER? Sunset Colors Antique Caucasian Shield Medallion with Akimbo Border
Size: 3.5 x 9.1
Age: Antique, C. 1930's
Pile: Low/Med with lovely age-related wear - we've had the two ends expertly repaired by hand so this piece is considered MINT restored condition - a true gem.
About: RARE Sunset Color Palette and just a true tribal village piece with geometric motifs throughout that are all different sizes and shapes. Ram horn motifs trace the Caucasian shield medallions throughout with a funky & iconic "akimbo" motif that symbolizes strength and power (which the weavers and people of this region valued highly as there was so much turmoil and hardship throughout the decades). Resilience and Growth were also big themes in these people's lives and therefore art which is perfectly displayed in this piece. This piece is in the top 5 most gorgeous runners I've ever seen IN MY LIFE, and I've seen more than you could ever imagine!! True ONE OF ONE GEM. Wherever this piece goes, please cherish it and let it bring you the optimistic and cheerful colors that these weavers put into this piece as positive and happy intentions for themselves and the world.
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces - irregularities, ancient old repairs/touch-ups, and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.
Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!
We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
