Beautifully Tribal Long and Narrow Antique Persian Serab Runner Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1900 – This elegant and tribal antique Persian Serab rug is a masterpiece of sophisticated splendor. Warm neutral tones of brown, camel, beige and rust are beautifully blended with cooler shades of sea foam and light blue.
The central field of this beautiful antique runner rug displays a vibrant fusion of various geometric shapes. These tribal patterns are set against a bolder earthy reddish brown color. This created a beautiful juxtaposition and playfulness between the designs themselves and background.
A series of soft diamond figures, which are saturated in a mellow sea foam green hue, occupy the majority of this space. They are decorated with various ornamentation, ranging from white daisy images to simple and primitively amorphic geometric lines. Lovely four petaled flowers, which are saturated in a rustic true blue, are horizontally aligned and gracefully adorn as well as compliment the geometric patterns.
The innermost guard border that lines the field of this antique Persian Serab runner rug, is made up of a simple dark charcoal colored background. This thin inner border is then lined with a row of tiny 4 leaf clover florets, which are featured in vibrant mutuality colored hues.
The main border in the middle is heavily adorned with diamond and square geometric shapes. This gives the Persian rug a feel that is more indicative of the cubist modern art movement of the early 20th century.
Finally, the outermost strand of this magnificent tribal long and narrow Antique Persian Serab runner rug, is a light rust colored outlined design with dark blue decorations that resemble tulips and sprouts. This adds a sense of completeness and balance to the overall artistic impact.
