KARACHOV KAZAK, Southern Central Caucasian
4' 11" x 8' 6"
(Connoisseur-Caliber) Lush full pile and luxuriously silky wool invigorate this resplendent antique Caucasian Karachov Kazak, pulsating with vitality despite its over 135 years of age. The innovative double-niche checkerboard formation along the edges of the field adds compelling texture to the exquisitely well-balanced composition. Greatly increasing the collectability of this masterful tribal rug, its eye-catching border presents traditional latch hook border motifs that are opposed on left and right in an original idiosyncratic way, creating a mesmerizing inner ivory meander. Strategic use of an eggplant purple dye further augments this dynamic 19th century tribal weaving’s incredibly rich palette and artistic stature. Learn About This Rug Type
