Default Identification ?

Hi All

I hope you can help identify this piece. My very nice neighbor ask me to look at her rugs, and this one made me clueless - jumping from Greece to Central Asia and back again.
Any help much appreciated.









best
Martin

Hi

Looks like a Caucasian verneh.

Cheers

Default Zangezur/Nakhchivan

Hi Martin,

The brocading and border design look to me like work from the Zangezur/Nakhchivan region. Here is a mafrash side panel from that area:

Perhaps it’s Caucasian, it reminds me of the piece shown on John Howe’s blog

https://rjohnhowe.wordpress.com/2011...an-flatweaves/

after the phrase
“Bob’s next piece was another with red balanced plain weave ground, with extra weft wrapping and sumak stitches on its diagonals.”

I think I remember there is something similar on Robert Nooter’s “Flatwoven Rugs and Textiles from the Caucasus”, but I cannot check because I am not at home.

Hi All

Thanks a lot, you are right I found a piece very very close to my neighbor's after doing a search on "Caucasian Verneh", it's on the marked so I won't post it.

Thanks again
Martin
