This elegant, long Northwest Persian runner is a perfect balance of boldness and refinement. Delicate miniature flowers in the style of Persian textiles from the eighteenth and nineteenth century are drawn within a lattice against a vast ivory field. This is framed by an almost monumental border of reciprocal pendentives of the type used in classical Safavid Persian borders of the seventeenth century. Though the composition is long and consistent, a subtle and sophisticated variation of color may be seen in the blues and greens with an almost musical harmony and organic rhythm.
Reduced in length, minor repiling.
