Description
Kazak, Karabach - Carpet - 237 cm - 145 cm
Wool on wool - Armenia - Early 20th century

Antique Kazakh Eastern Karabach.
In stunning colours and in excellent condition.
Ca. 1900–1920.
A beautiful red "open" field with three medallions.
Beautiful natural colours and abrash in the wool.
The sea-blue/green is much sought-after by collectors.
The central medallion depicts two mirrored dragons in dark blue at the top and at the bottom.
The dark brown wool indicates that it is old and that the knotters have used vegetable wool. This makes the wool somewhat more brittle and lower than the other wool.
The ornament on the brown margin is characteristic of many Kazakhs from Karabach.

Original and undamaged edges and ends.
