An imposing, monumental stepped medallion hovers amidst the field of this magnificent antique Serapi.

Antique Persian Heriz Serapi carpet, Persia, late nineteenth century. An imposing, monumental stepped medallion in soft green hovers amidst the rich red field of this magnificent antique Persian Serapi. Ivory corner pieces with stylized birds and flowers complement the medallion and enclose it, linked by vertical tree like motifs to either side. Sprays of vine and palmettes fill the area around the medallion. A dynamic ‘turtle’ vine scroll border on a variegated green ground echoes the graphic effects and coloration of the medallion. Serapi carpets are distinguished from Heriz rugs more generally by the greater abstraction and power of their design, but this exceptional piece rivals the power and boldness of a Bakshaish carpet.
