NORTHWEST RUNNER, Northwest Persian
3' 0" x 11' 11"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) This is a rarely found antique art-level runner woven some 125 years ago in a small tribal village in the vast wildness territory of Northwest Persia. Among this breathtaking Persian antique carpet's abundant attributes are its naturally dyed ivory field and saffron yellow border. The unique design of 11 shield medallions across a field of stylized wildflowers is dramatically complemented by its three borders of repeating stylized dragon forms, drawn to overscale proportions.
