Here the field consists of a complex pattern of quatrefoil and shield-like cartouches filled with delicate arabesque vine-scroll and leafy sprays, all reminiscent of William Morris wallpaper and textile designs. A sumptuous border of leafy palmettes and vines frames the field, accompanied by smaller vine-scroll minor borders. A predominantly golden coloration is applied throughout the antique Oriental rug, unifying it visually and imparting a wonderful decorative potential to the entire composition, while the velvety and luminous wool adds the final touch of elegance.
