Antique Caucasian Kazak rug, 19th century, NW Azerbaijan

Lot: 101
Kazak: A very old and ethnologically interesting Kazak, with a number of decorative elements scattered at random across a green met hane field abrashed in several tones, as well as an extra wide, white-ground main border. The form seen at the upper end of the field could be interpreted as a date, but probably constitutes an abstract four-legged animal. The structure, with salmon wefts, is an indication of the age of the rug. The original finishes, and probably the outermost border, are missing all around. Several repiled sections, two stitched tears in the left-hand border area, low pile.
Origin: South West Caucasus
Dimensions: 247 x 114 cm
Age: First half 19th century
Estimate: 3,000.00
Literature: RIPPON BOSWELL Wiesbaden, A 69, 19th May 2007, # 170
