3.11 x 12.6 Antique Northwest (or West) Persian Long Rug, Circa 1910

This “long rug”, a term used for wide runners, was woven in either northwest Persia or in Hamadan province in western Persia, circa 1910. It features a charming, minimalist-like design with four navy blue medallions on an “abashed” (variegated) camel color field. The large medallion is especially charming, with whimsical stylized shrubs or flowers, simplistic Quatrefoil motifs and horizontally striped “Both” (Paisley shape motifs). The color quality of this rug is outstanding, with crisp yellows and greens, mid blue and the various shades of camel.
