A lovely Kazak with a white ground. The vegetable dyes are fresh and bright. I love the way the boteh don’t align and that the top three are truncated at the top border and hint of an infinite field. Also the random scattering of decoration between them is true artistry. Note the crude inner border which is pleasing against the more typical main border. Altogether a wonderful rug with great attributes.
Size: 198 x 114 cm
Date: Late 19th C
Condition: Low pile mainly in the centre with the red foundation showing especially against the white field. Like many of these all wool foundation rugs it doesn’t lie entirely flat.
