665. an entrancing old Karadja Persian runner

Old Karadja northwest Persian runner

665. Provenance: Karadja, Persian Azerbaijan, northwest Persia

Size: 354 x 99 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condition: Very good for age.

Notes: A wonderful tribally-inspired design with six varied medallions surrounded by a wealth of stylized flowerheads and tribal motifs. The rich and varied colouring of this piece makes for an unusually harmonious overall effect (Karadjas can be somewhat garish), and the rug is intricate without being fussy. A stunning work of woven art.
