843. an invigorating old Malayer Persian runner

Old Malayer Persian Runner


843. Provenance: Malayer, western Persia

Size: 358 x 100 cm

Age: circa 1930

Condition: Good.

Notes: Western Persian has long produced many of the runners on the market, and they do it beautifully! This has lively, almost playful colouring and the all-over repeated motif in the main field, prevents to piece from feeling cluttered or overly busy. Nevertheless, this uniformity is livened by the well-balanced and stunningly coloured corner spandrels. The main border, which is in resplendent and varying shades of natural indigo, frames the entirity with elegance and verve.
