KURDISH RUNNER, Northwest Persian
3' 4" x 10' 0"
Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) This superb antique Kurdish runner delights its viewer with an incredibly playful, eccentric field design. Its delicate latticework and abstract blossoms seem repetitive at first, but on closer inspection present a charm and aliveness that can only be captured by free-spirited hand weaving. Its beautiful soft color includes not a single dark or somber tone, instead using glowing terracotta, ivory, sapphire blue and celadons to brighten this 19th century Persian rug’s presence.
