#6733 Tachte Shirvan
This circa 1870
Tachte Shirvan measures 3 8 x 4 5 .
In my knowledge this is an unpublished design. It is a very rare type of
Shirvan. It consists of four rectangles. The top two are in blue and aubergine.The bottom
two are in wheat to gold and blue. Between the rectangles are what appear to be Christian
churches pointing to Armenian production. All
is enclosed with botehs which remind me rooks (in a chessboard), all on a tomato red
ground. The major border is leaf and calyx
(wineglass) design in tomato, a dark sage green and pale blue with aubergine on a golden
wheat ground. It has two minor borderers which
are meandering S design which is very tightly drawn. The
ends and sides are complete and the rug is clean and ready to go. It is 99% full pile. It has wear as photographed. The buyer pays a shipping and insurance and $50.00.
