(“FALL/WINTER 2018-19 PRINT CATALOG", p. 12)
With their commanding scale and artistic variation from casual to regal, our superb quality antique Serapis are a popular choice for clients with grand homes. This is a particularly apt example of the powerful architectural format that the very best 19th century Serapis offer. Throughout, the artistry is exuberant but in a very balanced, attentive way. Continually striated blue in both field and border offers a consummate range of the prized mid-tone values for which Azerbaijan weavings are justly famous. The main border is notably wide and elegantly overscale, adding greatly to the potency of this carpet's overall emotional impact. Having observed this style for decades, we have seen how clients often gravitate to Serapi carpets whenever vaulted ceilings are present, as these rugs uniquely balance and personalize such grand surroundings.
