Kazak Khanate, the ancient Kazakh state in Central Asia, was bordered by mountain ranges and lush valleys of Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. It was home to weavers and dyers from Armenia as well as Azeris, Northern Caucasians, and other ethnic groups in this cultural melting pot. The Kazak rugs are among the most valuable and captivating Caucasian rugs due to their highly saturated color tones and tribal motifs. In addition to their allover patterns, the rugs are well known for their magnificent and graphic medallions, including the Sevan and Karachof styles. In the upcoming Exceptional Spring Auction – Art & Rugs, presented by 1stbid, an antique Kazak rug will be a key lot. The available antique Kazak rug features ram’s horns, wisdom stars, and box-shaped medallions, among others.
Antique rugs and carpets in the sale also include an antique Sarouk rug— named after a village situated north of Arak (Sultanabad). As a renowned weaving region in 19th-century Persia, Sarouk was known for creating carpets of high quality and artistic distinction. A variety of floral and curvilinear designs are seen on antique Sarouk carpets, including vine scrolls, opulent arabesques, and local bouquet patterns typical of the diverse weaving traditions that exist in the region.
