    Three large rectangles separated by horizontal borders of Talish rosettes take up the field. Due to lack of space, a fourth rectangle at the upper end could only be added as a halved form. Each rectangle is filled to full format by large hooked diamond with a dense, floral interior design and diagonal hooked shapes in the corners. In the main border, the star-shaped flowers with four diagonal arms ending in buds are drawn to a strikingly large scale. Unlike Karabagh rugs woven at a later date on dark brown wefts, this example dating from circa 1850 has red wefts. Very beautiful colours. – Signs of age and wear, corroded brown, several worn areas. Both ends somewhat reduced, the original selvedges show repairs.

    At each end of the red field covered in large arabesque palmettes and sickle leaves, a square with a yellow frame contains red snake figures surrounded by red dots. Although this field design – a combination of Persian and Turkmen devices – is very rarely seen, it is not surprising in Beshir rugs which often display design influences from Herat. – Distinct signs of age and wear, low pile, one major repiled section. New overcasting along the sides, damage to the kilim ends, badly soiled.

    Two hexagons and a central shield form fill the red field of this very rare rug, which is probably a Kurdish weaving from the border region between North West Persia and the South Caucasus. The strongly depressed weave using red wefts is reminiscent of early Kazaks. A hooked vine in the style of East Anatolian rugs meanders through the dark brown border whose ground is heavily corroded. – Obvious signs of age and wear, very low pile, various repaired areas. Somewhat reduced ends, damaged sides.

There are additional cuts. New overcasting along the sides, somewhat reduced ends.
