Antique Tribal Design Northwest Persian Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Like so many awesome antique Persian runner rugs, this one features a repeating pattern that leads the viewer’s eyes downward along ephemeral shapes and flows. A single strong border stands out along the edges of the antique Persian rug, providing a grounding presence that only serves to add to the other vibrant elements present. The background within the borders is a soft yellow, light enough to provide attractive contrast to the other elements present throughout. Rich green, bright blue, deep red and vibrant orange hues all stand against each other throughout the antique Northwest Persian rug. Between the framework of the border is a series of diagonal lines that course down the length of the antique Oriental rug, creating an illusion of swirling movement along a single rigid shape.
