Pattern chart with information about the origins of the carpet and fully illustrated instructions for the experienced needleworker to produce a 1/12th scale miniature version in needlepoint of an authentic oriental carpet.
The original carpet on which this miniature version is based comes from Shirvan, one of the principle waeving areas of the Caucasus region, in present-day Azerbaijan. This carpet, dated 1875, belongs to a group known as 'Flower Shirvan', which have large star-like polychrome flowers, arranged chromatically in diagonal rows on a dark blue ground. This particular example, with its borders of Kufic script, is very similar ot one in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.
