Caucasian Kazak antique rug fragment (77x 160cm)

£ 400.00

This end fragment of an early 19th cent ' Karachov ' Kasak rug is testament to an earlier generation to what was later produced in quantity in the later part of the 19th cent. The wool quality is extremely soft and lustrous having been probably selected  under neck and under belly parts from the fleece . Later wool yarns were produced from homogonised unsorted wool to meet demand. Colours also are exemplary and a credit to the dye master.
