3'1” x 14’2". Antique Persian Karaja Runner. 90 years old. Low, evenly worn pile. Wool on cotton foundation. Karaja rugs have a unique and easily identifiable pattern. The large row of medallions resemble crabs, insects and leaves. The navy blue field is less commonly seen (most Karajas have a red field) and makes this rug unique. Very straight. As always, a rug pad is recommended.
Vintage rugs are made by hand over the course of months, sometimes years. Their imperfections and wear are evidence of the hard working human hands that made them and the generations of families that used them. Character marks may include repairs, low pile, asymmetry. More often than not, rugs are not perfectly straight. Please see all photos before purchasing. Color may appear different in a dark room or from screen to screen. We do our best to photograph the entire rug from all angles but if you would like additional photos, please do not hesitate to ask. Video may help as well and we are happy to provide. Rugs are washed prior to being photographed.
