(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This strikingly originally designed runner is from the versatile Serab tradition known for its creative work with camelhair. In a welcome inversion, the eye is drawn first to this hallway carpet’s borders: on an outer band of glowing camel, unique overscale boteh (“seed of life”) motifs command enraptured attention. By contrast, the inner adornment is astoundingly intricate and densely interwoven, depicting fluid rosettes and blossoming vinery. The hybrid allover pattern pulsates with virtuoso handling of color, invoking celadon, apricot, mulberry, teal and brilliant ivory in concert to greatly enhance the sense of vibrancy. At over 140 years of age, this distinctive, soft toned runner offers superb condition for hallway traffic. Learn About This Rug Type
