This circa 1860 antique Sewan Kazak (#7779) Caucasian Oriental rug measures 5’8” x 8’0” (177 x 244 cm). It one or two generations older than the ones normally seen. It has a huge medallion with a green ground with two lobes at either end of the medallion. One is double the size of the other and very asymmetric. The center medallion is red, white and green on a green ground with a running dog border around it. The entire medallion is enclosed with an ivory border containing an ‘s’ motif and surrounded with a running dog border in blue. Each corner contains a square ivory design and a blue motif which puts me in mind of a tarantula design seen in Facralo Kazaks. All is on a beautiful tomato red ground. The field of the rug contains essentially no symmetry. Everything is basically one of a kind. The inner minor border is composed of an arrow motif, three sides of which are composed of an arrow point sitting on a triangular motif. The upper part of the border has only the arrow in blue and red on a camel colored ground. I’ve never seen this major border on a Kazak. https://antiqueorientalrugs.com/product/7779-sewan-kazak-antique-caucasi...
