#7471 Akstava This circa 1870 Akstava measures 4’2” x 9’7” (128 x 295 cm). i personally have yet to see an Akstava that i did not love but this one i love most of all. Let me count the ways. While it is the general average length (9’7”), it is a little wider than one normally finds (4’2”) giving the rug a more robust feel. The four medallions are absolutely to die for in dark rust, light rust and a stunning sky blue. Ten peacocks all have their own personalities. Their body colors are all different. There is a very nice asymmetry in the field of the rug. I’m not going to point it out. Look around and you will find it. The border is a typical Akstava border with an added cute touch in the lower left and upper left corners. The ends and sides are complete and original. The rug is in wonderful condition. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance. http://www.antiqueorientalrugs.com/CLOSEUP%20PAGES/7471%20Akstava.htm
