Antique Serapi with red abrash

 

Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present this beautiful bold Serapi carpet, an addition to our Featured Arrivals collection. This 140-year-old Serapi presents an unusual unadorned field showcasing an extraordinarily beautiful display of abrash, the intentional color striation created during the dyeing process. The rich red and ochre tones of the abrashed main field are complimented beautifully by vibrant indigo tones and soft parchment. Intriguing idiosyncratic motifs in the spacious sapphire corner-pieces include folk art sunbursts and even deconstructed butterflies, while lightning-like vinery segments and elemental rosettes pulsating with saturated color draw the eye through to the border of this room-sized Serapi. The highly artistic use of rich color combined with the intriguing use of folk art elements adding a rich visual appeal to this one-of-a-kind piece, and the well preserved condition of the rug makes this Serapi a highly collectable piece that will enhance any home.
