Mid 19th Century Caucasian SofrehThis large cover consists of two panels joined at the centre. It is woven in a particular technique described as balanced plain weave by Wertime; it leaves the warps visible, influencing the appearance of the colours. The ground colours of the vertical stripes are produced by red, beige, dark blue and green blocks of warps varying in size. Wefts of a different colour have been used to produce a geometric and often two-tone design of horizontal points, comb shapes and chevrons, appearing either in faint half tones or stronger full tones. The central vertical band of green warps constitutes the symmetrical axis of the mirror-image composition, consisting of two halves exactly identical in design. Narrow horizontal stripes separated by subtle brocaded seams create a sense of calm in the design. – This elaborate flatweaving technique is also encountered in the Fars region and in Shahsavan weavings from Azerbaijan. Similar to an example published by Wertime, we expect that cp 78 is from the southern Caucasus, probably one of the villages in the Karabagh region. However, a provenance in the Kazak region is also feasible as Sadighi writes that comparable pieces were found locally in the village of Tawus. – Original finishes, including the braided warps at both ends. good overall condition.Size 173 x 258 cm
