Antique Kazak Rug, Caucasus, Late 19th Century – This Kazak rug from the Caucasus features simple duality symbols, reciprocating latch hooks and a limited number of motifs woven in clear, contrasting colors that create a high-impact allover pattern. Clear colors in all areas of the spectrum add to the allure of this boldly designed and rendered rug. This classic Kazak rug woven in the 19th century uses contrasting colors and sharp outlines to create strong patterns using a relatively limited selection of motifs. Contrasting colors add to the impressive counter change pattern seen between the background and outline of each latch hook row. Crimson red outer borders decorated with a simple pattern of rosettes that are comprised of contrasting roundels complete the classic “less is more” composition of this antique Kazak rug.
