Valuable Verneh Sumak Rug flatweave with an AMAZING green & black & white checkerboard selvedge
Verneh a handmade Caucasian floor covering that was formerly termed a sileh.
Verné rugs are thought to have been woven around the town of Jebrail (Dzhebrail) in the Karabagh district of southern Azerbaijan.
The condition of this rug is clearly imperfect. Has worn areas and holes and today is a ‘fragment’
The blue / green border and selvedge are the aspects that make this piece
5 X 7.7 feet
Estimated to be woven in the early 1800s
A strong candidate for going up on my walls when I settle down!
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
