A Splendid Large Antique Persian Serapi Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa date: 1900 – Serapi rugs have been cherished throughout the centuries. They were inspired by the rugs of many surrounding cultures and artistic influences. This gorgeous piece from the turn of the 20th century features a unique design, even among the diversity of designs often seen in Serapi rugs. This one uses a large-scale all-over pattern that was inspired by the formal gardens of Persia and the natural world.

Weavers from the area often show a high level of originality in the designs, even when using more common motifs. This one has a geometric quality that gives the floral pattern an abstract feel. It is a variation on the Herati design that is sometimes called the “fish” design. Some believe that the leaf designs of the Herati motif actually represent fish. This unique rendition of the design gives the leaves a geometric stepped look instead of the traditional curved acanthus leaves.

Another quality that distinguishes rugs from this area is the use of brilliant colors. They were master dyers and had access to a wide variety of plant materials to create bright rugs that also have a harmonious feel. This is a magnificent piece that shows the skill and inventiveness of the weavers who created it.

The all-over geometric pattern of the rug gives it a formal feel that accentuates its traditional and classic side. The simple designs and abstract florals give it a primitive feel that brings a relaxed, calming effect to the room. Today, style trends are moving away from a mass-manufactured look in favor of pieces that have a unique character. Handwoven rugs serve as the foundation for creating a space that gives the room a spa-like feel with abundant greenery and original artwork. Anything goes when it comes to creating a space that reflects your unique style, and this magnificent piece is an excellent way to bring a touch of artistry to any space.
