  • Kazak Long Rug

    Add to wishlist
    • Lot6
    • OriginSouth West Caucasus
    • Dimensions304 x 100 cm
    • Agesecond half 19th century
    • Estimate EUR3,500 - 4,200

    This red-ground long rug features a repeat of five slender offset trees decorated with hooked diamonds and serrated palmettes. The white-ground border contains hexagons in varying colours aligned in a row. The published examples of this rare Kazak group are virtually indistinguishable and probably originate from the same location, although as yet this has not been identified. Features that differ from other Kazaks are the wealth of brilliant and diverse colours as well as the border ornamentation, which would be more typical of Saliani or Chajli rugs. They are assumed to be Armenian weavings. – Good condition, only minor repairs. The selvedges have been repaired on both sides.

    A red-ground three-medallion sumakh with a main border of star-shaped blossoms bearing four diagonal arms ending in buds.

Alternately green and red, the rectangles contain a central hooked diamond enclosing a large cross, surrounded by decorative designs and four animals in the corners. The diamonds decorated with diagonal arms in the main border resemble crabs or spiders. – Original selvedges, repiled lower right corner and finish. Somewhat reduced upper finish, a number of repiled areas in the field.

    • OriginSouth West Anatolia
    • Dimensions160 x 131 cm
    • Agesecond half 19th century
    • Estimate EUR3,500 - 4,500

    The small-format double-niche rugs made in Dazkiri continue the design tradition of a specific group of “Transylvanian” rugs, picking up on their composition and ornamentation. However, they differ in terms of their palette of high-contrast colours. In this finely woven Dazkiri, the intense red of the field was probably achieved by a cochineal  dye. – Slight signs of age and wear, heavily corroded brown, minor repairs to the original selvedges, good condition.
