Caucasian Karachov Kazak- 6ft 0in x 7ft 10in, Circa 1850. Its great visual potency is enhanced by the rare & captivating emerald green field, coveted by antique rug collectors. The vigorous saffron ground of the main border holds a most intriguing & asymmetrical design. Rich symbolic patterning, including sophisticated iterations of the traditional latch-hook, double ram's horns, & stars of wisdom motifs, reinforce the tribal identity of this memorable Antique Persian tribal carpet.
