Everything that makes Kazak desirable could be seen in this Antique Rare Cloudband Caucasian Chondzoesk Rug.

Chondzoresk rugs are also known as Cloudband Kazaks and are a part of the Caucasian Rug family. Cloudband rugs usually have references to Caucasian dragon carpets within the field, as can be seen within the medallions on this gorgeous piece. Very fine craftsmanship and in good condition.
Along the field’s vertical axis, two striking medallions present this style’s cloudband devices that radiate from central squared rosettes. These enigmatic forms in Asian mythology represent the “bands of clouds” created by the vapors that enclose the dragon as it flies overhead, emanating an age-old, deeply symbolic ambiance of beneficence.

Historically the Armenians of Karabakh were governed by principalities or duchies. The Five Duchies were Khachen, Jraberd, Varanda, Dizak and Golestan. Jrebard, Chondzoresk, and Kasim Ushak (Kazanbulak) are historically Armenian towns in the Northern Duchy of Jraberd in Karabakh.

Caucasian rugs are primarily produced as village productions rather than city pieces. Made from materials particular to individual tribal provinces, the rugs of the Caucasus normally display bold geometric designs in primary colours. Styles typical to the Caucasus region are Daghestan, Shirvan, Gendje rugs, Kazakh and Quba rugs. Several carpet styles from contemporary northwestern Iran also fall largely into this bracket, such as the Ardabil rugs.
