Description: Antique Persian Hamadan runner was hand knotted in Iran of 100% natural wool. This rug is 70+ years old and it is showing some abrash (fading) due to the weaver using old vegetable dyes in the yarn. It has full, even, soft, wool piles and is in excellent condition. Beautiful colors with excellent quality. No holes or repairs, and very plush and soft. Gorgeous design but not a perfect rectangle. This rug was acquired from a Virginia Estate. Clean and ready to be enjoyed. Recent embargoes by the U.S. against Iranian goods should cause the value of these rugs to increase.

  • Condition: Excellent
  • Notes: Hamadan is a city situated in the western part of Iran, 300 kilometers west of Teheran. It is one of the worlds oldest cities and is mentioned under the name of Ekbatana in the Bible, see the book of Esther. The city is a center for trading with carpets that are manufactured in the hundreds from nearby villages and cities. The best of these carpets are sold under their own names such as Nahavand, Tuiserkan, Malayer or Hosseinabad. More simple carpets from the area are sold under the generic term Hamadan. They are easily recognized with their typical patterns and sizes. The patterns are very varying and the medallion as well as carpets with repeated patterns occur. Among individual patterns the Herati is the most common pattern. The colors are dominated by different nuances of indigo blue and madder red. Older Hamadan carpets can be very attractive products. In the city itself, Hamadan, carpets were manufactured with a considerably higher quality. The carpets were called Shahr-baff and are similiar in structure to the Bidjar carpets, but they are rare on the market today.
