Antique Caucasian Eagle Kazak Rug, Origin: Caucasus, Circa: 1900 – This absolutely remarkable antique Oriental rug is practically filled to the brim with gorgeous, traditional elements of design. Woven by the legendary rug makers of the Caucasus, this particular antique piece is of a style that is considered especially desirable: the Eagle Kazak style. Characterized by a fanning central medallion that occupies a disproportionate space in the field, in addition to a pair of complementary geometric figures above and below, this Eagle Kazak has all of the hallmarks of the very best examples. In addition to exhibiting the traditional elements of design, this fascinating antique Caucasian rug really stands out from the crowd with its brilliantly contrasting pallet. A field of red is the setting for the action, and it is a red that appears even redder against the ivories and pale blues that characterized most of the detail work. An impressive tribal rug, this Eagle Kazak fro the Caucasus is a great example of the power of traditional, tribal design.
