(Decorative) A joy to behold, this antique Central Asian Samarkand carpet couples harmonious artistry with adventurous interpretations of traditional design elements. In a rarely encountered corridor-size, this delightful turn of the 20th century Oriental carpet offers a creative "Rug Within A Rug" format with a delightful array of abstracted botanical motifs. Stylized tulips, geometric medallions, and delicately rendered zigzag patterning enrich its surface in deeply appealing intricate detail. An additional dividend is that it is in excellent condition with heavy pile overall.
