The Dodds Unusual Shahsavan Kilim

I spotted this Unusual Shahsavan Kilim on www.Cloudband.com offered by one of the World's great dealers Dennis Dodds.

Trusted Resource List Rug & Carpet Dealers In The U.S. Maqam.

This Shahsavan kelim has an energy and vitality that impressed me. Ther is no doubt about the Shahsavan attribution and the color is excellent.

Unusual Shahsavan Kilim

  • ize: 213.4cm(W) x 304.8cm(L) / 7'0(W) x 10'0(L)

  • Region: West Asia  Caucasus  South Caucasus  Shahsavan

  • Item Type: Rugs and Carpets  Flatweaves  Kilim

  • Period / Date: 19th century  late (1875)

  • Other Colours: green, blue, red, white

  • Condition: Very Good

  • Comments On Condition: There are a few very small reweaves. Both ends retain their original braided warp fringe. There is a minor break in this braid in the center of the lower end.

  • Full Description: A large, single-panel kilim, the striking palette features horizontal rows of deeply indented hexagons in a fresh, light green, clear, pale blue and deep red. The serrated edges of these simple shapes excite the eye and render the overall piece with a sense of dynamic movement to the spacious, balanced composition. A well-drawn sawtooth meander in the ivory outer border (note how deftly the corners are resolved) offers a satisfying contrapuntal component. At first glance this shows features found in Anatolian Karapinar kilims, but the wool and palette suggest otherwise.
