This circa 1870 Sewan Kazak antique rug measures 3’7” x 5’9” (113 x 180 cm). This is a very lovely and interesting little rug. a Sewan Miniature! i have never seen one smaller than about 5’ x 7’. It has a very large and well-drawn Sewan medallion in ivory in a combination six pointed star latch hook medallion with a red ground on a larger pulled medallion in green which is also a pointed star. The field is tomato red with a mainly Sewan design, the difference being that this one contains two quadrupeds in the lower field of the rug. You don’t generally see this type of rug with animals. The major border is very strange. It’s on a dark blue ground and the horizontal borders are different than the vertical borders. The horizontal borders are flower heads in red and white at the top and different flower heads are at the bottom. The vertical borders are similar to each other containing flower motif, triangles within squares and figures i don’t even know the name of. The rug is totally asymmetric. From the medallions, to the field, to the borders, there is symmetry. Take a close look at this image. If you examine it closely you will be amazed at the layout of the design. It is truly one of a kind for its type. The rug is essentially full pile. It has complete ends and sides. It is clean and ready to go.
