CAUCASUS

Tchelaberd so called

“Eagle Kasak”

 

Associazione Antiquari d'Italia

 

  

Size: m. 2,58 x 1,34 - 8’5” x 4’4”

Age: end of XIX century.

Condition: perfect.

Provenance: private collection, Rome.

 

It is probably the most famous carpet of the whole Caucasus.

 

Its origin is the district of Karabagh (close to the Kasak district) and specifically the village of Tchelaberd but is commonly known as “Eagle Kasak” or also “Sunburst Kasak”. The first nick name is for the affinity of its medallions the eagles of the tsar’s emblem. The second to emphasize the strength of its design.

 

The field is based on three eagles medallions surrounded by several small geometrical motives.

 

The border is traditional to the class and complete in its original frames. The main band is decorated with a rosettes motive.

Bibliography is full of Eagle Kasaks.

 

A similar nice piece with three medallions was published by P. Bausback, Antike Meisterstucke Orientalischer Knupfkunst, 1975, Manheim pg 119.
