(Connoisseur-Caliber) Our extensive collection of art-level antique runners is greatly enhanced by this mid-19th century Caucasian Gendje masterwork. A spectacular visual delight,it offers a novel combination of naturally dyed colors such as a particularly potent saffron yellow, rich indigo, warm madder red and clear ivory. The coral hue of this antique runner's border is to die for! A remarkable level of ingenuity can be seen within the repeating diagonal stripe design traditional to the village of Gendje in the Southern Caucacus Mountains, known for its finely crafted, joyously spirited antique tribal rugs.
