#7742 Kuba

This circa 1850 antique Kuba Oriental Rug measures 3’8” X 5’1” (116 x 155 cm). It has an ivory ground completely covered in a combination of shield and palm head design with multi colored diamonds across the top in tobacco, red, blue, and black. There is a barber pole border of the type found only in Kuba flanking the majorborder with crab design on a medium blue ground. The two vertical borders have crabs nicely spread out. Across the top they become a little more squeezed together and at the bottom they are a little tighter yet. There are all sorts of  cute little things spread throughout the rug. There is a little quadraped, little diamonds and I forgot to mention there is a date 1222. Email me if you want to know what that translates to if you cannot work it out. The ends and sides are complete. The ivory is full iple and the reds are a little low. That’s a common thing in Caucasian rugs. The rug is very finely woven. It is in beautiful condition.  It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $50.00
