This first-quarter 20th century Shiraz runner measures 3’6” X 13’10” (109 x 422 cm). It has eight ivory medallions containing birds and various quadrupeds on a dark blue ground which contains circles, stars, and trees all encompassed with a geometric variation of tree of life motif on a cordovan ground. The minor border has a scrolling S design. The edges have an interesting finish of a thick corded multicolored wrap which has obviously been added after the manufacture of the rug and which has been sewn to the still complete original edges. Don’t ask me why. This rug shows wear. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $100.00.
