Magnificent Tribal Rare Antique Caucasian Kazak Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Caucasus, Woven Circa Date: Turn of the 20th Century – This especially rare antique Caucasian Kazak rug is characterized primarily by a series of stacked medallions that run up and down its field, each one at least slightly different than the last. These attractive medallions are especially beautifully woven, with stunning detail work present both within and without. Of course, there is more to this magnificent antique runner rug than these comely medallions: for carefully positioned at the the upper horizontal border, one finds a pair of human figures, standing playfully for all to see. This tribal rug is so unusual to see such depictions of geometric people in an antique Oriental rug that one cannot help but be drawn to the figures, the mere presence of which is intriguing. Further down is another such pair, and throughout the piece are beautifully detailed floral and geometric elements. A dizzying pallet of both bright and subdued colors is also utilized throughout, giving the entire tribal antique Caucasian Kazak runner rug a dynamic energy. Rare and beautiful, this antique rug is truly something unique, as well as something timelessly beautiful.
