An exquisite assortment of jewel-like medallions filling field and borders are the highly compelling distinguishing feature of this captivating Northwest runner carpet. It reveals its prized turn-of-the-20th-century heritage through the incredible individuality and notable spaciousness of all its motifs, particularly central chain of artfully dissimilar hexagons, each incorporating slightly different orientations in its intricate boteh motifs. The scattering of delightful tribal ornaments is a highly spontaneous and engaging feature. Intelligently composed flashes of bright ivory, as well as the outer frame of unadorned camelhair, create undertones of overall balance and subtle movement.
