Bidjar runner

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Woven with the thick and sturdy weave for which Bidjar pieces are renowned, this joyful runner displays a veritable rainbow of natural color. Against a deep indigo ground, the field skillfully draws an elegant rendition of the Persian floral 'Herati pattern' which organizes blossoms, palmettes, and foliage around small diamond lattices. The border used is perhaps the most popular Bidjar type, linking alternating palmettes and rosettes against a saturated madder-red ground.
