FACHRALO KAZAK, Southern Central Caucasian 4ft 3in x 6ft 2in 3rd Quarter 19th Century
This unique collectible-level Caucasian antique prayer rug presents an ideal balance of spontaneity and order with its perfectly harmonious color palette, proportions and eye-catching clarity of line. Its ivory primary border is filled with limitless creative variation, balanced against a guard border with a floral design that brings a subtle symmetry to the carpet and supports the overall design. The signature center medallion acts as a center point within the graphic niche design done in a stunning teal color. The weaving mastery of this antique tribal rug can also be seen in the abundance of uniquely designed secondary motifs, which seem to float above the niche design and the glowing brick red of the carpet’s field. Enhancing its collectibility, the 19th century antique Oriental carpet possesses stunningly silky wool that has been preserved in heavier pile condition.
