Serapi Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th century – Beloved for their superb quality and distinctive designs, this archetypal antique Persian Serapi rug features dazzling colors, original designs and intricate details that incorporate rectilinear and curve-linear influences unique to northwest Persia. Hamsa-like cartouches with scalloped bottoms, columnar extensions and ornate palmette ornaments form a stunning allover repeating pattern with a grand scale and a superb level of detail and complexity. Fleecy ecru cartouches alternate with reversed figures that display soft hues of oxidized brick red. Meandering vines and quatrefoil islets break through the rare and gently abrashed blue ground, which is a coveted Serapi hallmark. The phenomenal colors, composition skills and contrasting details retain precedence in the vivid tomato red main borders, which display an equally unique pattern of knot work palmettes surrounded by delicate vines and Safavid-influenced botanical.
