Guide to Star Kazak Rugs

In 1980 Hali, Vol. 3, No 1, the late Robert Pinner and a British rug dealer Michael Frances published Star-Kasaks/Sternkasaks. This was a detailed look at the known Star Kazaks at that time. The most enduring part of the article are the four groups into which Pinner and the rug dealer divided the rugs. The Hali Star Kazak groups types A, B, C, and D continue to hold up well to this day.

I take a look at Star Kazaks in Star Kazak Rugs: The Erikson Type B Star Kazak Rug and I laid out the types in Star Kazak Rugs: Ornaments of Star Kazak Rugs.

This is a classic Type D Star Kazak from Don Wheeler of Birdshakes Oriental Rugs. Between  1969 and 1975 Don bought and sold over 3,000 rugs of this quality. Selling to most of the big "Name" collectors and dealers of the day. Don has graciously agreed to share some of his great rugs with us.

Of this rug Don Wheeler wrote:
My  Star Kasak  was purchased by me in  1972 or 73 for $500 from Ed Derallian in Santa Cruz California.  I sold it to a close friend Mickey Marino in 1975 upon the closing of my Gallery. Since that time I have lost touch with my friend and the rug.....
