Antique Persian Senneh Runner Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Turn of the Twentieth Century – A unique composition, this antique Persian Senneh rug exhibits tremendous detail throughout its long and narrow format. First, a series of narrow borders surrounds the perimeter of the runner rug. These are rendered in fiery tones of red and orange that immediately infuse the Persian rug with a powerful energy. This is an affect that is achieved over and over again throughout the entirety of the long and narrow field: here, a dark background color allows for the complex, intricate line work of orange and red to stand out dramatically, imbuing the entire field with an impressive complexity. A series of six medallions stands in the center of the field, one above the next above the next. This stacking gives the field a sense of being even longer than it is, and perfectly complements the runner format of this intriguing Persian Senneh antique rug.
