Introducing this enchanting late 19th-century antique Persian runner that embraces the charm of shabby chic aesthetics and exuding a unique character that only time can create. Against an espresso brown ground, cinnamon-brown hues intertwine, creating a moody and evocative color palette. Amidst the symphony of blossoms, there is one solo flower that stands out from the rest, with its edgy triangular shape, adding a whimsical touch to the overall design. This singular bloom showcases the weaver's artistry and their wonderful expression of creativity, making this piece truly one-of-a-kind.
Throughout the runner, the boteh motif makes its sporadic appearances within the field, punctuating the floral tapestry with its distinctive presence. These random and unique motifs tell a story of the weaver's individuality, with each symbol carrying its own significance and personal touch. This amazing runner becomes a vessel, sealed with the weaver's expressions and emotions, inviting you to delve into the rich tapestry of their art.
The borders of this runner feature a continuous boteh-paisley design, framing the central field with elegance and grace. The fully bound sides and secured top and bottom ensure that this antique treasure will endure for generations to come, preserving its beauty and history. This runner is quite worn and has a beautiful and floppy handle. Handwoven with vegetable dyed wool.
