(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery")A beloved style from the Persian Sarouk region that emerged in the very early years of the 20th century is known for its use of glistening lamb's wool that is amazingly soft to the touch. This piece, in a rarely seen short runner shape, offers a full spectrum of color and an engagingly graceful design—not often found from this style that often hewed to a minimalist palette and repeated unconnected motifs. From a single diamond-shaped blossom, flowering boughs and other original devices that include vases and botehs in an array of golds, cerulean and rose tones upon a rich midnight indigo ground. The effect is elegant and alluring. This 100-year-old rug remains in superb, heavier pile condition. Learn About This Rug Type
