Antique Pak Kazak
Measuring 7ft long X 42” wide, the Pak Kazak are also known as Quazak or Ghazak in some regions.
These rugs were originally created during the 18th century in the city of Caucus, Azerbaijan. Kazak rugs were not woven by any singular tribe—instead, their origin is steeped in a blend of all regions across the area. If a singular culture had to be tied to the Kazak, it would be Armenian. The women of these areas are responsible for the establishment of the Kazak.
The Kazak are likewise famous in their region for their widespread influences that have inherently influenced their designs.
This beautiful rug is all wool. A tiny bit worn towards the middle probably due to being used for prayer. I have never had this on my floors. Extremely rare to find Pak Kazak rugs of this vibrancy and quality. This was appraised for $2,500 Appraised by Mark Gonsenhauser’s Oriental Rugs, Virginia Beach, VA. in 2008. they have increased in price substantially since then.
