Serab runners from western Persia are known for their characteristic open camel frames engulfing both borders and field. This fine Serab runner then draws a row of medallions with alternating half-medallions both with matching camel grounds. An array of small-scale vegetal ornament is traced in jewel tone colors throughout these camel-ground areas. Similar motifs are traced in brown against the ivory cream ground creating a distinct but pleasant contrast between foreground and background.
