SERABAND RUNNER, Central Persian
3' 6" x 9' 10"
107cm x 300cm
(High-Decorative) Nuanced formality that is highly atypical for an antique runner and intricate, small-scale patterning gives this Seraband runner a thoroughly magnetic presence. Extremely finely crafted, it features fluid waves of pattern that tare incorporated within its "window within a window" medallion, subtly emphasizing the vertical axis while introducing an exquisitely detailed internal world. The painstaking attention to miniscule detail continues at both ends, but then becomes considerably more spacious in sheltered niches at left and right, where naive blossoms provide a welcome, deeply personal surprise. Majestic, clearly drawn repeating borders and effective use of subtle terracotta to carnelian abrash further distinguish this exceptionally versatile corridor rug. Learn About This Rug Type
