A rare Karachov Kazak Caucasian Rug

This 150-year-old Karachov Kazak is a fine example of this rare and highly coveted Caucasian rug type, displaying the bold, crisply drawn octagonal medallion and intricate checkering that are the signatures of the Karachov Kazak style. This piece features unusual squared dimensions, which adds to the feeling of profound spaciousness of the archetypal geometric motifs, which include iconic Caucasian rug symbolism including the such as star of wisdom, latch hook, and double rams’ horn. The colors in this rug are mesmerizing, particularly the rare and much sought-after fern green field, the richly saturated tones contrasting beautifully with the soft maize gold of the border. The rug’s deep hues have a luminous quality as they seem to shimmer from within, a stunning patina having developed over the piece’s 150 years.
