Notes: 
Antique Kilim long carpet, Kuba, late 19th century. An impressive staggered design of serrated palmette set against a blue field on this magnificent antique Kuba Kilim or great classical carpets of the Caucasus. The smaller palmettes and rosettes that make up the border also reflect the Kazak and Karabagh rugs of the Caucasus. Kilims with such design and rich color are exceptional in Persian weaving, as is the unusually long and large format of this amazing piece.
