This first half 19th century Borchalo Kazak measures 3’10” X 4’9”. It is a lovely little prayer rug which has a tomato red field and a very simple prayer design. The medium blue prayer arch is very high on the field of the rug denoting age. The blue/green diamonds flanked by two hexagons are filled with what some might refer to as ‘tree of life’ or what some refer to as ‘crosses within crosses’ as portrayed in Armenian churches. Many believe that these rugs were woven by Armenians. The inner border is reciprocal white and brown which is reflected in the outer major border in the colors of green and tomato red. This is very unusual. There is slight re-piling in the field. There is a small problem in the lower right-hand corner which is easily repaired. The ends and sides are overcast. The rug has vibrant silky wool and is very pleasing to the eye. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping of $50.00.
