Antique Caucasian Kuba rug, last quarter 19th century, 147x 99cm. Azerbaijan.

Note: This is a Kuba rug with a Khyrdagul (Khirdagyd) Chichi design, I couldn't make a Seichour / Zeykhur connection anyhow. The origin is obviously more to the north of Chichi village. But it is not so far as we can call it a "Seichour" (V.D.)
