This circa 1870 Kazak antique Oriental rug runner measures 3’9” X 8’8” (118 x 268 cm). It is a very interesting Kazak. It has diagonal stripes in ivory, green, gold, brown and blue on a tomato red ground. The interesting thing about these diagonal stripes is that they are hooked. I have never seen this treatment before. The major border is composed of eight pointed stars in green, tomato red, and dark blue separated by what appear to be wine glasses with the stems touching and the bowls facing in opposite directions. Interesting motif. There are four barber pole minor borders in red, blue, green and ivory on a brown ground. These surround a reciprocal spade motif on a brown and blue ground. Very cleverly executed. This rug is in excellent condition. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $75.00.
