A Caucasian Kazak Antique Rug

We are proud to present this charming and lively Caucasian Kazak antique rug, one of this week’s featured arrivals.

Many antique carpet connoisseurs are drawn to the innovative use of color commonly displayed in the antique rugs from the highest reaches of the Caucasus Mountains. For those collectors, this stunning example of a Caucasian Kazak rug will not disappoint! Natural dyes are used to brilliant effect in this 120 year old Caucasian rug, with vibrant  tones of ivory, madder red, saffron, indigo and apple green combining to create a striking work of art. Diminutive botehs (an ancient precursor of the decorative paisley motif), each completed with a visually intriguing variety of tones and pattern, harmonize beautifully with the energetic Wheel of Life medallions of the main border of this antique rug.
