A VERY RARE PICTORIAL KUBA
Nineteenth century 3'11" x 4'10" (120x147 cm)
From Murray L Eiland Jr. & Murray Eiland III's "Oriental Rugs A Complete Guide" plate no: 284
Description: Although this rug, with its deeply depressed alternate warps, is clearly from the Kuba district, one cannot make a more precise village attribution, as it includes elements of several well recognized types.
Note: Although that we can't
precisely indicate the exact village origin of this rug, as M. Eiland
writes in his book, the Chichi origin is highly possible here. Especially,
in Dere Chichi village of Kuba district, the Kufic border was widely used.
