17 3/4 x 64 inch Greek Islands Textile silk backing all hand stitching...it appears to be a runner that was shortened...fantastic harmonious colored silk thread...a great study in scale and in spacing...I get the impression it was made at a time when busy busy designs were not employed...hence this characteristic along with age could mean it is earlier than 18th century?
Very nice chest...exceptional book matched circassian walnut veneer. 44 wide..21 deep and 36 1/2 high. 19th Century.
7x4 10 Iranian Lavar Kerman Pictorial Prayer Rug...very good condition considering it is from the last quarter of the 19th Century. I believe the King is Shah Abbas who directed Iran in an autonomous fashion. The rug has many magical motifs going on. The angel on the ostrich. The birds at odds with the serpents in the border. This is a special rug presenting a very special leader in history who respected religious diversity in Iran. An uncommon leader who led his country to greatness.
Great antique Ziegler Mahal..Persian of course! Extremely great color..highly decorative..In Very Good condition..9'2"by 12
