Nobody does serrated, bent, hooked or barbed leaves quite like the Mehriban weavers of NW Persia. Here the soft rust-red field shows a central rosette organizing characteristic straight leaves in ecru, straw, green and near black. The vertical axis is subtle and defined by pairs of sharply doubly bent eggshell leaves. Near-black border with very long armed reversing turtles on the sides and lots of floating little dots. Slight partial reduction at one end. Good pile condition..
