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
