533. a serene antique northwest Persian runner

Antique Azerbaijan Persian Runner

532. Provenance: Northwest Persian Azerbaijan, possibly Kurdish

Size: 290 x 100 cm

Age: Circa 1890

Condition: Fair for old age. Minor wear in field and loss to kilim at one end, with minor losses at other.

Notes: A lovely, dignified northwest Persian runner, with a calming repeat of the famous 'boteh' motif, precursor to the Paisley design. This runner has a soft, flexible handle, and is well-woven in glossy wool. The dyes are natural and have been softened with age. This is an unostentatious piece of woven art.
