Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

A rare early version of the Harshang design, (see also lot 32 in this sale), in highly unusual runner format. The yellowish -camel coloured ground is also a feature not often seen, but which very successfully contrasts with the colours of the various palmettes, resulting in a particularly attractive rendition of this version of an ‘in-and-out palmette’ design. For an example which displays similar striped and spotted palmettes, see that published as pl. 78, p. 78 and dated to the 17th century in the Kirchheim collection, Orient Stars, A Carpet Collection, Stuttgart and London, 1993. See also detail on p. 4 of the printed catalogue.
