Antique Kazak ivory field prayer rug, rare "Markarian" type, 3'9" x 5'1". Original sides, no restorations. Mostly even wear, with heavier attrition near center where a 4-inch vertical slash has been rejoined. Sourced from a Midwest Historical house. Recent professional cleaning. i can see no dye runs other than some instability in the light blue abrashed areas. The light spot near lower right corner is caused by sunlight. --n.b. Another rug very similar to this, offered at a lower price, may be found among my earlier rr posts. Note: for the oldest of this type, a prayer rug dated 1856 see Walter Denny, The Markarian Album, Cincinnati 1988, Plate 39, also hali 1/1 p.48. -- My rug is probably 4 or 5 decades later. For a non-prayer variant of this type see Lot 41 in recent Rippon-Boswell sale (May 2016)
