Kuba Antique Rug 3’3” X 3’9” #7739


Age: Circa 1880

Size: 3’3” X 3’9”


This circa 1880 Kuba antique rug measures 3’3” X 3’9” (100 x 117 cm). It is a cute little Kuba with a lattice design on an ivory ground. Each part of lattice is filled with different shapes and colors of flowers. There is lots of asymmetry in the field. The inner and reciprocal borders are on red and blue grounds.Two reciprocal borders are separated by an ivory border containing little flowers. The outer border has various renderings of crosses shaped like flowers and game boards in Baku blue. The more I look at it, it may be a Baku. It has a very fine back like a Baku and I have never seen this color in any rug but Baku. I guess that’s what makes this fun.  It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $50.00
