Plate 444: An attractive example with a somewhat misunderstood rendering of the Seichur border.

The field contains a wide polychromy, including green, three shades of blue, red, red-brown, dark pink, pink, orange, light yellow and white. Few other Caucasian rugs can match the visual splendour, the almost Byzantine magnificence of the best Kazaks. This piece, however, which, unlike most Kazaks, has a composition of an endless repeat, is one of the few that can. The greatest example of its type I have seen. Second half of the19th century. 185 x 125 cm

404. Zeijwa Antico 
Antica composizione a file sfalsate di medaglioni tipici del gruppo, cite tuttavia presentano anche una notevoie somiglianza con un particolare tipo di göl Yomut. Parimenti notevole e la coincidenza con la colorazione tradizionale del Kazak ad aquile: sui raggi bianchi posa una forms a croce verde azzttffa con I'ornamento centrale rosso (cfr. n. 90) II complesso delle bordure, elaborato concura, presenta in un'ornamentazione tipica una variante variopinta molto rara del motivo del "cane che corre" su fondo beige. Bordo interno verde bottiglia. Annodatura molto fine, disegno nitido e pelo brillante e vellutato. 185 x 125 cm
