Samarkand Fragment Runner N12550 3'4" × 17'1" $6,500
This lovely runner, although made in the 21st century, stays in the spirit of traditional Samarkand creations. However, it is quite unusual even for the multi-cultural style of the oasis town. Its field is divided into several rectangles, each bearing a different design. Curvilinear architectural forms, flower heads as well as geometric pattern are executed in a pronounced chocolate brown and mustard yellow hue against the ivory and beige background.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of original modern rugs in many styles and materials. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
