#7578 Shirvan Runner

This circa 1860 Shirvan runner measures 3’6” X 9’2” (109 x 280 cm). This is a very lovely tribal piece from the period I consider to be the climax of the Caucasian manufacturing period between 1850 -1890. The blue field has five medallions in ivory, red, blue, and yellow gold. The rug is alive with asymmetry. There are Memling guls here and there and little diamonds filled with squares. There are a couple of quadrupeds and diamonds with legs. It has it all! This is a very exciting rug. The rug has an octagonal shaped medallion  in red, blue, green, peach light brown and reddish blue which is very finely drawn. It has an ivory border. The ends and sides are complete although they have been repaired. The edges have been replaced with machine made edges and the work is nicely done. The rug shows wear which is repairable and consistent with its age. It wouldn’t bother most people. It doesn’t bother me. The rug is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $45.
