Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present this exquisite new addition to our featured arrivals collection, a beautifully refined antique Serapi. Featuring an entirely singular color palette and a powerful use of traditional Serapi pattern language, this extremely finely woven 150-year-old Serapi is statement piece that would be a standout among any collector’s holdings. A grand scale shield medallion combines a unique auburn tone with carefully sculpted blossoms and palmettes against a backdrop of rich golden cream. Large scale blossoms and beautifully rendered stylized oak leaves spaciously ornament the highly creative field, while a virtuoso display of abrashed aqua and azure washes across the expansive corner pieces, shifting to soft powder blue at the top end. Note the chiseled lines of the repeating rosette and oak leaf motif in the main border. This stunning piece is the epitome of consummate craftsmanship and superlative artistry, and would be a magnificent highlight in any rug connoisseur’s collection.
