43819 Antique Serab Runner, Persia, late nineteenth century - A classic design of hexagonal medallions and stylized vines unfolds down the field of this richly graphic antique Serab. Vinescroll and S-dragon borders frame the field. The dominant use of a natural camel ground is quintessentially Serab, as is the highly abstract, geometry of the design. But the lovely array and impact of red, blue, and mauve tones set against the camel is exceptional, even among the best Serabs. The richness of the design and palette are matched by the sumptuous, tactile beauty of the plush wool pile.
