Large Lori Pambak Kazak Rug
Item Details
Description
Large Lori Pambak Kazak
278 x 184 cm (9' 1" x 6')
Caucasus, ca. 1880
Condition: very good, good pile, all four corners slightly restored, scattered small repairs
Warp: wool, weft: wool, pile: wool

The rugs made in the Kazak district of southwest Caucasus, northwest of Lake Sewan, can be used to trace the history of the region in which they are made. This finely made and well-preserved carpet shows strong links to the Azerbaijan silk embroideries of the 17th and 18th centuries, and their close cousins the rugs from the 18th and 19th centuries woven with similar medallion styles.
This rug is considerably larger than carpets made in the earlier 19th century in southern Caucasus. That fact speaks of the increased wealth in the region in the later 19th century, both for the weavers and any potential customers, the result of growing interest in the region from Russian and British Empires.
What distinguishes this particular example is the clarity of its colours—in particular the deep, bright red, very clear green and strong yellow—and the height and proportions of the drawing within the medallions. In fact, it is in the small details that the high quality of such weavings is clear: note the precision of the hook forms, both within the small secondary medallions and those surrounding the whole central medallion; the red and white chevrons used to fill in the hood forms within the central medallion; and the naturalism of the flower forms in the minor borders.
