Antique Caucasian RugsAntique Caucasian Kazak Rug, Caucasus, Late 19th Century – Zigzagging guard bands and pyramidal borders decorated with stepped polygons, running water patterns and monochromatic frames create a high-impact design using simplistic elements. Ram’s horn motifs decorate the medallion and central quatrefoil figure while colorful rosettes and double ram’s horn motifs define the remaining parts of the field. This antique from the 1880s is woven with a spectacular color palette that includes a combination of red, ivory, oxidized blue, buttery yellow and a fantastic celadon field featuring a subtle abrash and mottled variegation. Checkered stripes supplement the borders and simple divided lozenges, which are for protection against the evil eye, create a surprisingly modern appearance using ancient designs.
