Kurdish Rug, Persia, Turn of the 20th Century – Radiating a warm tribal style and attractive quirkiness, this antique Kurdish runner is a wonderful addition to a rustic interior or prized collection. Poly chrome cane stripes ranging from traditional reds and blues to warm ochre yellows and rare greens are creatively depicted as borders and as a zigzagging field design. Speckled eye motifs in contrasting hues add to the decorative appeal of the colorful striped decorations. Just as the cane stripes are re purposed and re-imagined, the charming border rosettes function as guard bands while simultaneously defining the boundaries of the complementary field. Near the ends, unexpected cruciform devices embrace mortal imperfections while adding to the richness of the geometric stripe pattern. Using a limited number of motifs and colors, this Kurdish runner produces a wonderful, vibrant composition that has a tribal exuberance.
