Serab Runner - Robert T. Mosby Inc.
NAME: Serab Runner
AGE CLASSIFICATION: pre-1910
ID(Jozan): no. 101744
DESCRIPTION: This circa 1880 Serab runner measures 3’8” X 13’5” (115 x 410 cm). It is an absolutely fantastic camel hair runner. There are seven diamonds up the center, each with a different motif. The field is worked in various colored blossoms in blue, green, aubergine, and rose etc. all very asymmetrically drawn. The corners are worked in a striped design on an ivory ground ala Genji. The runner has a single reciprocal border in blue and brown and is nestled ever so nicely inside a wide camel apron. There are two little men at the top of the rug. Believe it or not, they remind me of Tyrolean mountaineers in short pants and little black hats. This is very cute. This rug is it essentially in perfect condition and is at least 130 years old. The ends and sides are complete and original. The buyer pays the shipping. Please visit our website at www.antiqueorientalrugs.com Inventory #7334
