475. a remarkable Northwest Persian runner

Old or antique Heriz or Northwest Persian runner

475. Provenance: Heriz area, Northwest Persia


Age: Circa 1920

Condition: Good.

Notes:  A runner, probably from the outlying rural areas of Heriz. Simple and almost naive in its design and execution, it exudes tribal charm, with strong primary colours and human figures, both male and female, as well as livestock. These northwest Persian tribal rugs share many features with their Caucasian cousins across the border in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia etc. The five joined medallions are especially spendid, as is the major border.

Price: $1295
