The field consists of a serrated leaf lattice linked by rosettes, with smaller geometricized floral motifs inside the lattice compartments. The border, of this antique rug is made up of double serrated leaves and rosettes is also based on the helical garland border of Chi-chi Kuba rugs of the Caucasus.

The large scale open design and the use of saffron yellow converge and make this one of the most fantastic runners in today’s market.
