Muted colours are the main feature of this narrow city runner.Old gold,medium blue and ivory- beige are the most salient tones,complemented by chocolate brown and light blue.
Two layers of leafy flowering vines run the full length of the field,crossing or almost meeting.The sinuous flowering tendril of the border reproduces this effect on a smaller scale.The weave is quite fine and even,on an all cotton foundation.The pile has a smooth,silky texture.Kerman is justly famous for its large carpets and there are relatively few runners,especially one this narrow,to be had.The condition is generally quite good and the rug is ready for usage.The soft palette makes this lavar runner particularly versatile in today's minimalist decor,but it also works in traditional interiors with denser levels of ornament.
Whereas most early 20th century runners are geometric,this is one of the relatively few with a curvilinear floral pattern.This rug has been cleaned professionally and is free of any stains or odors.For further information please email us or call us at 212-268-5876.
