Early 20th Century North West Persian Runner BB7149 3'4" × 14'10" $9,000
The vast region of North-West Persia encompasses parts of Iran, Azerbaijan and Armenia thus rugs coming from this historical area are permeated with influences from many cultures, including Kazakh, Kurdish, Mughal or Armenian.
This antique North-West Persian runner was made circa 1920. Its main field carries motifs that are known as paisley or boteh/buta – this is one of the most popular Oriental ornaments. The main field is enclosed within a series of borders adorned with flowering climbers. The color palette features blue, brown, green, red and white.
The runner was thoroughly hand-knotted of high-quality wool in accordance with centuries-old techniques by a skilled artisan. Due to such careful making it remains in excellent condition until this day. If provided a minimal amount of care, the Persian rug will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
