Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) A favorite of Caucasian rug collectors, 19th century "Eagle Kazak" rugs are easily the most distinguishable from the panoply of Caucasian types for their astonishing 12-tipped sunburst medallion motifs. Every connoisseur who loves Caucasian rugs lusts to have at least one fine-quality Eagle Kazak in their collection. This harmoniously composed, 125-year-old piece is extraordinarily preserved with heavier pile overall. It presents three and half medallions and a sprinkling of many tiny geometric forms that provide a whimsical accent to the majesty of the rug, serving like a jester in the king's court. Such spontaneity that tremendously enhances the rug's impact fell away in the much more commonly found the early 20th century examples. Distinguished for the unusual shade of its burgundy red ground and with glistening wool, this incredibly vital rug offers a rich palette that includes cobalt blue, teal, saffron and emerald green.
