Claremont Rug Company is proud to present this striking new addition to our featured arrivals collection, a bold and mesmerizing Persian Karaja antique rug. This best-of-the-best quality Persian Karaja carpet offers a seamless marriage between precision and asymmetry. This dramatic room-size antique rug is an unforgettable example of individualistic, entirely confident artistic expression. The open composition of its wide, skillfully striated field holds a singular, intentionally misshapen medallion containing a naively stylized tree. Perfectly balancing the robustness of the field are striking corner spandrals that hold minute tile work patterning in which every single flower petal presents a new color choice. A full spectrum of colors in the border further reveals an highly admirable artistic finesse coupled with outstanding workmanship and an extremely fine weave. It is in heavy pile condition, also making it an ideal antique Oriental carpet for a heavily used area.
