Caucasian rug entirely knotted in wool, mid 20th century /circa 1950, with cross design typical of the rugs from Yerevan (capital of Armenia). In her book Eder shows similar specimens on pages 164/165; they are interesting to point out as they exemplify the type of rugs this item descends from.
The flat selvages on the sides and the wool warps, the structure with well beaten and ordered reverse side, the designs well spaced with perfect symmetry, the dyes used and the "goblets and leaves" patterns in the main frame, are all elements confirming the above mentioned nature and age of the item, whose typical commercial name was "Shirvan" or "Derbenti" rug.
