Shahsavan bag face, Qarabagh Province, Central Transcaucasia, size 21" x 27" (53 x 69 cm), circa 1875, the design elements are clearly Shahsavan, the attribution is tentative, the field is divided into three horizontal panels, the top and bottom panels feature what i call a 'reflective floral stem with bud' construct, a multi-level humanoid figure dominates the central panel, the presences of the meandering winged motif on either side of this figure is unusual, all natural dyes, the mellow beige color appears to be a signature characteristic of this tribal group, condition very good, slight loss at the bottom, side wraps not original damage to the corner closure area, this weaving was once a member of the Michael Craycraft Collection.
