Kurdish-Karabagh Rug (Persian or Caucasian). The Karabagh designation is a general one relating to a region not a village or specific ethnic group. Kurds, Armenians and Azerbaijani Turks all produced 'Karabagh' rugs in the 19th century. The 'leaf-and-calyx' main border design is seen on both Kurdish and Caucasian rugs. Here, the execution is in a decidedly Caucasian manner. For a 'Kurdish' rendering of the same border see Eagleton, William, 'Introduction to Kurdish Rugs', pl. 32. The design of the central field is very rare. Various structural features are inconclusive on the question of attribution. For example, the rug has elongated nodes of the type seen on many Caucasian rugs. In this example, the warps consist of two-ply, natural wool of the kind seen on Kurdish rugs. Whereas, many Caucasian rugs from the Karabagh region are three-ply. It should, however, be noted that certain Bijar (Iran) area rugs occasionally carry three-ply wool warps. The pile obviously has wear. The foundation is solid with no holes or structural damage.
