A late ‘Classical Chinese’ period runner from the Ningxia (or Beijing?) region that has been shortened by rejoining three ‘sections’ of a longer runner and repiling the ends (which the photos show). The close-up photo on top left shows the underside in the border (30kpsi), while the close-up photo on top right shows the underside in the body of the carpet (24kpsi). Note also the wool warp and weft, unusual for a Chinese carpet!
