Vintage Persian Hamadan Runner

This Striking, Persian Hall Runner was handwoven in the Hamadan Province located in the West of Iran, using symmetrical knots made up of a cotton foundation and wool pile. This combination of materials gives the rug a particularly plush finish and the tight weave with a double weft and a high pile makes it durable and heavy.

Starting from the centre, this rare piece features 2 blue lozenge medallions which are Herati patterns typically found within Hamadan rug design. Enclosed within these medallions are a number of salmon-pink and cream floral patterns outlined by an unusual jagged border. The main rug area is handwoven in a rich red colour, surrounded by a narrow, light blue outer border, almost telling a story of the blue sky overlooking the earth.

The relatively narrow sizing of this Persian rug is very useful in dressing a corridor without overfilling it, enabling a space that is often only used for getting from one part of a house to another, to become a feature in its own right. From circa 1930, this runner is robust and will easily cope with another 50 years of corridor conundrums!
