ANTIQUE PERSIAN SERAB RUNNER RUG. 13 ft 7 in x 3 ft 8 in (4.14 m x 1.12 m).

Beautiful and Tribal Antique Persian Serab Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This captivating, natural tribal rug from Serab has an earthy feel that brings a touch of organic goodness into today’s contemporary spaces. This antique rug was created in the late nineteenth century and has rich, earthy tones and primitive tribal designs. It is the perfect piece for creating a Boho sanctuary or from for adding a touch of tribal style to a contemporary or modern space.

One of the latest design trends in popular media is bringing a bit of the natural world inside. The natural browns and beautifully blended colors created from natural dyes make this piece the perfect complement to this year’s color trends. This year’s most popular colors include dragonfly blue, bluebird, cayenne pepper, apple cider spice, and earthy browns.

This is an adorable piece that has a wide range of floral designs, primitive animals, and people throughout. It also has the boteh motif, or paisley, as a prominent feature. This is a tribal symbol that means eternal life or the eternal flame. It can also mean regeneration or the seed of life. This carpet has a playful and whimsical character that is closely connected to the people and culture that created it. It brings an earthy and primitive feeling to the space.

Serab is a village located in northwestern Persia in a remote part of the world that made it difficult to participate in global trade. This allows them to develop their own original designs that reflect traditions that remained unchanged by the intrusion of the modern world. They are known for their unusually fine weave and more delicate lines that you usually do not find in the village rugs.

This is a longer piece that would be perfect for a wide hallway or for a longer room to bring down the scale and create a cozier feel. The design of the carpet reflects the artistic choices of the weaver. It is the result of hundreds of years of traditions passed down through song, poetry, and sometimes simple memorization of the traditional patterns and themes.

This antique carpet is from a people living close to the earth, and it reminds us of our own connection to the natural world. It would make the perfect piece for creating a soulful and calm room for those times when we all need a break from the modern world. This is a beautiful piece for the private collector or for anyone who needs a reminder of life’s simple pleasures.
