Rare very old five paneled Tibetan runner from the 19th century with both ends intact (i.e. this has not been shortened from a longer runner, but was originally woven as five squares) and with the original red covered felt border still in place. Pictures are worth a thousand words, or so they say, so they can tell the rest of that story. This very early intact Tibetan runner has been in a private collection since the very early 1970’s, and this is the first time it has come on the market since then. Overall size is 2.8m x 0.72m (110” x 29”) which includes the red borders. Actual woven carpet size is approximately 2.66m x 0.58m (104” x 23”). It is made with hand spun wool warp and weft and all natural dyes, and knotted with the very big 'loose knots' commensurate with early Tibetan weaving's. Also note the brown outer border is dyed with that early brown corrosive dye sometimes seen in these older carpets. It was most likely woven circa 1850 - 1875. It is in very good condition for its age. There is no damage to the carpet itself and no repairs or restorations, hence this is a unique opportunity for a serious collector to acquire an rare truly antique fully intact Tibetan runner.
