Antique Persian Hamadan runner in good original condition. This rug has white open field with floral design in geometric pattern. Very beautiful border with variety of colours on it. The condition is original, it has some low pile due to age.

Hamadan is a city situated in the western part of Iran, 300 kilometres 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 pattens 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 Shah r-baff and are similiar in structure to the Bidjar carpets, but they are rare on the market today. The carpets are manufactured with a ropy, shiny and often natural dyed hand-spun yarn, that provides a very durable surface and beautiful colour scale. Common for all these carpets is that they are nowadays made on a cotton warp with one weft.

The patterns are mostly geometrical, but floral motifs also occur. Materials and design can be of very varying quality. Older carpets (before 1920) are often tied on wool warp, different from todays cotton warp. The younger carpets (after 1960) often have synthetic colors and less fine wool than older carpets. The most common sizes are dozar and zaronim (approximately 200x120 cm and 150x100 cm).
