Long, old runners are not an easy find and this antique gem from the 1880s definitely strikes a cord. It is bountiful with bold natural dyes, featuring a Herati design in the field, also known as Mahi design. If you see closely, there are fish that surround a flower head in a repeating pattern.
The color story here is warm and you see colors of autumn on a chestnut brown ground and with the abrash (natural variations and shades of natural dyes), you will also see lavendar! Please see our pics of the beauty.
This runner was woven north of Persia, in the Caucasus mountains.
Low pile, vegetable dyed wool. Scattered wear. Hand woven in the 1880s.
