(Connoisseur-Caliber) An elaborate shield medallion is the starting point for the inventive artistic program of this antique Laver Kirman oriental rug. Its abundantly detailed, ethereal contours bear intricately articulated branches, flowers and lyrical vinery. Its naturally dyed golden reserve is gently awash with expert abrash striation, while linked cornerpieces create an elegant surround. In exceedingly good condition for its over 125 years of age, this virtuoso antique Persian carpet is among the numerous significant area size rugs in the Claremont Collection.
