SERAB CAMELHAIR RUNNER, Northwest Persian
4ft 5in x 10ft 2in
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
This profoundly artistic antique Persian Serab Camelhair carpet is a total departure from the traditional format of this style, bringing an entirely innovative take on the soft lattice and pointed geometry for which these antique village Oriental carpets are so avidly prized. Layered triangular accents in the corners of the elongated reserve direct the composition toward a greatly increased dynamism, with enigmatic tiny parallelograms producing a fascinating, one-of-a-kind secondary pattern. Innovative freestanding leaf devices in the pure camelhair band at each end are another welcome idiosyncracy that profoundly energize this Oriental art rug, while this unusually wide runner's heavy pile condition ensures great durability.
