Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) Replete with mesmerizing pattern and color shifts, this deeply appealing short runner with its prized undyed camelhair field combines a surprisingly sophisticated design with unaffected, almost naïve tribal motifs. An expertly balanced diamond-within-diamond field design creates a compelling, irregularly drawn latticework into which an innovative assortment of spontaneously rendered blossoms is inserted. In superb condition despite its substantial age, this unusually diminutive runner also offers an inventive assortment of naturally dyed colors, including seldom seen leaf green and walnut brown.
