312. A luxuriant Karadja Runner

Old Karadja Persian Runner

312. Provenance: Karadja, Northwest Persia/Azerbaijan

Size: 337 x 109 cm

Age: Circa 1920

Condtion: Very good.

Notes: An unusual Karadja, in that the distinctive hooked hexagon in the centre of the field stands alone, when they are normally repeated throughout the field. Here it is flanked more minor hexagons. This is single-wefted and uses the symmetrical 'Turkish' or 'Ghiordes' knot, and is dyed with vibrant natural dyes. The wool is lustrous and oily. A lovely piece.

Price: $1295
