Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present our newest addition to the Featured Arrivals collection, a highly unusual blue 19th century Persian Serapi Heriz carpet. Instead of the saturated reds and indigo blues which are typically seen in rugs of this genre, this singular antique Serapi Heriz rug is distinguished by a profusion of softly abrashed blues, jade greens and salmon in one of the rarest color palettes we have ever see in this ever popular style. Its pattern is equally inventive as its palette, consisting of vastly overscale, abrashed botanical motifs that appear to float freely across the delicately abrashed denim field. Its condition is superb at well over a century of age. This refined room-size example of the Serapi weaving tradition would make a lovely addition to any collection or home, the soft palette giving the piece a high level of versatility.
