Stunning Kazak Rug — Green, Magenta & Blue — 8 ft. 9 in. by 6 ft. 3 in. $749

 

Mesmerizing old vintage rug with blue and mint medallions on a red magenta field.

Possibly too bold for some–but the colors are really electrifying if you want to enliven a living space. Colors approach a psychedelic intensity.

Very good condition with even minor wear to the pile. Pile was clipped short by the weaver to show off the triple medallion Kazak motif and prominent floral borders. 100% natural wool. 1960s. Most likely from Karabakh (also Karabagh) region or Soviet Dagestan. Or possibly eastern Anatolia.

This is a rug that would make a statement in any room although not a perfect match for a paisley sofa and floral wallpaper. And not for the faint of heart. Exact size is 8 ft. 9 in. by 6 ft. 3 in.

Price is $749. Shipping is $43 or free pickup is a possible option.

Stunning Persian Armenian Lilihan Rug — 12 ft. 5 in. by 2 ft. 10 in. — $459

Amazing old Persian village carpet with traditional Lilihan floral motif. Typically these are woven in the Hamadan region by Armenian tribal weavers. 1960s. Outstanding colors including the primary field of salmon — with accents of green, blue, indigo, red, olive, brown, gray and ivory.

Very minor fringe wear. Rug is very solid and finely woven, and can be used in a high foot traffic area without concern. Difficult to find well crafted narrow runners — especially of such exquisite beauty. Minor abrash (color variegation in the dyes) with one end maybe slightly lighter than the other.

Last photo with Morgan silver dollar shows the back of the rug.

Natural wool on natural cotton. Exact size is 12 ft. 5 in. by 2 ft. 10 in. Perfect for a narrow hallway or corridor with lots of light to show off its beauty.

Persian Armenians are the largest Christian minority in Iran, and many estimates put their numbers at 150,000 to 300,000. Although Lilihan rugs are commonly associated with Persian Armenian weavers, there is obviously nothing distinctive between Muslim and Christian carpets unless they contain religious symbols such as mihrabs, mosques, churches, crosses, or quotes from the Koran, etc.

Many of the Lilihan rugs have an ‘art deco’ look to them and are similar to Sarouk and Mahal rugs– especially from the 1920s and 1930s.

Price is $459. Shipping is $43 within U.S. Free local pickup can also be arranged.
