SERAB RUNNER, Northwest Persian
3' 7" x 16' 10"
Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) (“NEW ARRIVAL") This ambitious Serab runner reveals what the most mature village artisans could produce when a virtuoso mastery of color dyeing is joined with the painstaking, deliberate hand needed for crisp clarity of drawing. The multiple medallions float majestically not only on the midnight indigo ground but also within their own serrated surrounds, which provide opportunity for stunning tone-on-tone sapphire and sky blue abrash of the greatest subtlety. An ethereal, continually changing celadon shows similar dexterity in the outer fence of security border, as dose the warm apricot inner band--each above-and-beyond demonstrations of technical and aesthetic mastery. Truly art for the floor. Learn About This Rug Type
