This runner was woven in Northwest Iran at the turn of the 20th century.
It features large diamonds in orange, brown, light, and dark blue on a brick ground. Each diamond is filled with five further diamonds "dice five" formation. Botehs can also be found both inside and outside of the diamonds on the field along with blossoming flowers and other shapes. The whole is framed by three thin borders- a small scale "dice five", a scrolling vine, and finally a red and blue laleh abbasi guard border. The solid coloring of the field diamonds plays off well against the distinctive abrash of the brick ground.
It very good condition, a hefty pile with a floppy handle.
