This is an antique Kazak rug woven in the western part of the Caucasus mountains at the end of the 19th century circa 1880 to 1900. The field is comprised of four abstract medallions set on a dark blue background with accompanying hooked medallions. Each center medallion is comprised of three geometric boxed motifs, each with the center access decorated with repeating motifs. The ivory light green and yellow colours create contrast against the dominating dark blue and brick-red field. The main border is designed with an alternating geometric variant of the sickle leaf motif flanked by a bi-coloured triangular design. Each alternating sickle leaf creates movement within the design and acts like a step causing the viewers eye to ascend towards the top of the rug. The outermost border has a saw-tooth design with highly saturated polychrome colours.
