Antique Persian Serab Tribal Runner, Persia, c. 1900 – This masterful antique Persian Serab runner, with its muted field and brightly colored abstract geometric figures, is a wonderful example of the Serab style. Serab rugs are prized for their traditional tribal designs, which often juxtapose large areas of negative space with detailed interpretations of culturally important symbols. The stirring composition of this exemplary runner is characterized by large, soft blue, triangular corner pieces, and a field populated by three large diamond-shaped figures, alternating red and blue. A series of smaller symbols appear throughout the runner, arranged in a alluring asymmetrical pattern that draws in the observer. A beautiful series of borders, featuring a host of rich detail, stands out brightly from the field of this Serab runner, their dancing tribal symbols full of energy. A work of tribal artisans, this beautiful runner is a genuine composition rich with cultural significance.
