SHIRVAN RUNNER, Southeast Caucasian
4' 10" x 14' 2"
147cm x 432cm
(High-Decorative) (“New Acquisition Sampling") Offering a generous, nearly 5 foot width that is entirely uncommon and extremely desirable, this superb, turn-of-the-20th-century Caucasian Shirvan runner is certain to attract intense interest for the transformative effect its artistry will have within a grand foyer or high-ceilinged passageway. This seldom-produced tribal weaving will immerse the rapt viewer within a sophisticated program of saturated color and crisply drawn geometry. Twin columns of octagonal rosettes transition through potent jewel tones that include garnet, jade and a riveting tangerine hue, all set upon a glowing denim blue ground. Borders are equally mesmerizing, offering dynamic multicolored motifs that are clearly rendered and precisely arranged. The memorable antique runner comes to us in excellent, heavier pile condition.
