(Connoisseur-Caliber) This triumphant example from the much-loved Bordjalou Kazak rug subgroup brings together a magnificent abundance of the attributes that instantly excite Caucasian carpet connoisseurs. Its 19th century dye work is radiant, offering tremendous saturation in its marine blue field and secondary apple greens and gold tones. No less than eight whimsically rendered horses are prominently placed throughout the field, clearly showing the reverence nomadic tribespeople held for these beloved animals. A wonderful irregularity and the unaffected, asymmetrical placement and drawing of all of its motifs perfectly capture a seemingly effortless spontaneity that is, in fact, the sign of a top tier, collectible piece.
