#7773 Marasali Shirvan Rug

This very antique Marasali Shirvan measures 3’2” X 4’1” (96 x 124 cm).  The rug is dated 1793 in the upper right spandrel with some Arabic writing which I cannot read although I can read the date. The rug has a nicely drawn niche in blue with a double serrated edge in red on an ivory ground. The lattice motif is filled with various flowers with a nice degree of asymmetry. The reciprocal minor borders are flowers separated by light blue check marks on a dark blue ground. The major border is wide for the size of the rug and it is the typical border for this type of rug. The ends and sides are slightly degraded and the rug is generally low but you’ll be low too when 225 years old. This is the oldest dated Shirvan I have ever seen. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $35.
