Antique Caucasian Kazak Runner Rug, Origin: Caucasus, Circa: 1900 – This superbly beautiful antique rug — a piece that is actually technically a runner, woven in the Kazak tradition in the Caucuses some time around the turn of the twentieth century — is a brilliant example of the traditional Kazak notions of design and craftsmanship. Woven in the Caucasus, this exceptional antique Caucasian Kazak carpet features traditional protection symbols woven into an angular all-over arabesque based around a columnar series of rosettes and serrated lozenges defined by foliate figures and geometric latch hooks. Ivory guard bands decorated with a reciprocating hook pattern flank the prominent main borders, which feature serrated leaves and secondary wine-cup motifs woven in a classic combination of red, ivory and indigo blue. Richly historical and deeply culturally relevant, this winner of a runner is a testament to the skill of the people who made it.
