FINE CAUCASIAN KAZAK AREA RUG
Caucasus, circa 1900
Item # 711JGZ25P
These colorful and vibrant rugs originate in the valleys of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Caucasus. This example was woven circa 1900 with a wealth of motif and bold vegetable dyes. The main border is a powerful display of the repeating and rather variated crab over an ivory ground, the repeating saw-tooth and squares in the minor borders creating a nice contrast with their deeper reds and blues. The primary ground of the rug is a deep red with four medallions, the center two with the distinct Memling Gul motif; a scatter of animal motifs with the likeness of Llama and chaotic displays of stars and other motif leave a rich display of individuality and local color. With a soft and pliable structure and a low pile that allows the design to show through with strength, the rug is a very fine example of the region and a wonderful acquisition for collectors passionate about the Caucasus.
