Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This impressive, entirely harmonious late 19th-century Kurdish runner is memorable for its seamless interplay between uniquely reinterpreted compositional zones, with each section given equal importance and integrated perfectly into the composition as a whole. The symmetrically balanced design deftly interprets single rosettes of the classic Herati latticework format, elevating each motif via large scale, potent saturation, and the luminous antique ivory ground. Faceted geometric borders are a major focus of the design, featuring a clear ivory ground, seldom found in antique runners, alongside equally unexpected accents of pumpkin, turquoise, crimson and denim blue. Deliberate, attentive craftsmanship creates crystalline definition throughout, while heavy. pile creates great durability. Learn About This Rug Type
