Antique Fachralo (original name - Fakhrali, Fakhraly) rug, mid 19th century, Borchaly / Bordjalou Uyezd

Lot: 234

Fachralo Kazak Red-ground Fachralo Kazaks are encountered far less frequently than green-ground pieces. This elite example from an old American private collection, with a spacious composition of generously drawn designs, is comparable to a red Fachralo in the Textile Museum, Washington D.C., published by Tschebull. They only differ in border design. The upper finish has been expertly repiled, otherwise in very good condition, with the original selvedges and lower kilim finish.
