VERAMIN RUNNER, North Central Persian
3' 7" x 14' 2"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This landmark antique Veramin runner is an exemplary work from this most seldom produced of 19th-century weaving groups, featuring a particularly dynamic color palette and sophisticated relationships between elements. It ably expresses the consummate, elegantly balanced artistry of this prized style via an exquisitely textured latticework of individually drawn single flowers. The delicate blossoms benefit from the weaver’s total mastery of light and dark contrasts, creating a pulsating effect that is enhanced by rhythmic waves of the diagonal design. Even among connoisseur-caliber pieces, the astounding clarity of every motif and the sheer profusion of captivating jewel tones ensure this will create a most gracious passageway.
