Antique Caucasian Tribal Kazak Runner Rug, Origin: Caucasus, Circa: 1880 – Here is a mesmerizingly gorgeous antique Oriental rug: a traditional Caucasian rug of Kazak origin that boldly and articulately makes the case for the enduring beauty of traditional tribal design. This striking antique runner, the length of which is more than double the width, is in harmonious proportions throughout. A rich series of borders – featuring inner, outer and main border elements – effortlessly frames the dynamism of the field in this Caucasian carpet, which is dominated by a brilliantly executed geometric layout. Sixteen equal squares populate the field, gridded off from one another by an inner-border of red and white stripes in this Caucasian Kazak Rug. Each of these squares is a small masterpiece in and of itself, featuring an octagonal element embellished both within and without with traditional tribal design motifs. All of this is communicated through a palette of reds, blues, and a seductive cream tone. A masterful tribal composition, this antique runner is a fantastic example of the Kazak design tradition, and a testament to its enduring appeal.
