Early Karachov Kazak Rug
Item Details
Description
Early Karachov Kazak
203 x 174 cm (6' 8" x 5' 9")
Caucasus, mid 19th century
Condition: good, low pile but not worn, lower right corner restored, scattered small repairs and reweavings, slight signs of use
Warp: wool, weft: wool, pile: wool

This Kazak carpet made in the village of Karachov is exceptional and unusual for a number of reasons. The first and most obvious is that it has a deep-blue ground matched with such a vivid golden-yellow border, a combination repeated in only one or two other examples in the literature. Other, numerous features that make this rug virtually unique include: the absence of any hooks on the outside of the red medallion extending into the white ground of the central medallion; the size of the red, green and white small squares that surround the medallion and make up the rectangular device that dominates the field; and the use of three hooked boxes containing stars that extend horizontally above and below the central medallion.
These are not seen in any other weaving of this type, nor are there any records of another green ground for these features. Additionally, the field contains four golden-yellow combs in rectangular blue reserves, which are also unprecedented in their colour combination and number. The appearance of two people in the field along with a herd of horned beasts, presumably sheep, enhances the piece’s character as a truly tribal or village product; there is also a small animal that has escaped the restrictions of the field and can be seen gambolling around the border. The rich colours, including a deep aubergine, the unique composition and the finerthan- usual knotting indicate that this a rug made in the middle third of the 19th century - and one of the best examples that we have offered for sale.
