SERAB CAMELHAIR RUNNER, Northwest Persian

The camelhair's luminosity and rich mocha tone emphasize the drama of this robust Serab runner. This heightens the intriguing contrast between the field and the undyed sheep's wool that make up the branching design elements between each island and outline of color. The extremely adept use of a naturally dyed palette in this superb 19th-century Persian runner sets it aglow with a magical presence. Crimson, saffron, sage green, and azure hues are juxtaposed for maximum visual impact by a master of chroma. The subtle textures lent by the adept use of abrash color embellishments provide animation overall. Its equally lively border suite is not simply a secondary part of the composition but instead given equal importance and integrated perfectly into the composition as a whole. Unusually lustrous wool, fine weave, and heavy pile heighten the desirability of this immensely memorable runner.
