This very good condition runner is a study in complementary blue tones.The ever popular, ever classic herati ( "fish" ) pattern of lancet leaves,rosettes and open lozenges neatly covers the deep blue ground.In addition there is a light blue and two shades of red as accent tones,along with ivory and touches of a clear yellow.The main border has an angular vigorous vine tendril enclosing fishbone boteh.The blue of this border has a slight greenish tinge and is intermediate between the two field blues.A third red provides the grounds of the two secondary stripes and matching boteh chains decorate them.An ivory innermost band with a geometric vine adds an emphatic element.The warp is cotton and the single weft between knot rows is wool in various brown tones.The overall condition is very good and a cotton plainweave strip ends the top of this runner.The origin is likely a Kurdish tribe located between Malayer town and Hamadan to the west.The quality of weaving is fully up to the better Malayer standard,however.This piece has been cleaned professionally and is free of any stains or odors.The rug is in such great condition that can withstand any kind of traffic.For further information please email us or call us at 212-268-5876.
