Kazak Oriental Rug
second half 19th century Kazak antique rug measures 43 X 90
(131 x 274 cm). It has a double keyhole design. It is in full pile delicious
condition except for one thing. At the top end of the rug there is a very
strange repair. The last border has been woven separately from the rest of
the rug and then sewn on to the end of the rug. From the face its a great
job. From the back you can see it. I believe the weaver either wove it wrong
or it was so messed up that he wove it again and attached it. At the same
end there are three reweaves from ½ wide to 1 wide and from 5 long to 12
long. The reweaves are expertly done and basically invisible from the
front of the rug and they are old repairs. Otherwise this rug is in full
pile condition like it has never even been walked upon. The two keyhole
motifs are ivory surrounding the inside which is a beautiful green with a
red center. It sort of looks like a Sewan. The field is a very dark blue
with a lattice work design in alternating ivory and blue. There are three
quadrupeds and a couple of birds. The insides of the pieces of lattice look
very much like pitchforks sprouting flowers. The ivory border contains a
double facing C motif in green and red which I have not seen before and
cannot find published anywhere. East and west of the major border are two
reciprocal borders on brown ground probably natural wool because there is no
erosion. It is done in an interesting flower head design. The outer
reciprocal border is done in the same motif only a little bigger. The ends
and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the
shipping with insurance of $50.00.
