(Connoisseur-Caliber) This is an antique tribal Persian Arab Khamseh carpet of stirring singular virtues: an unusually finely crafted antique nomad carpet of great size and totally individual artistic character. The vigorous, vastly overscale medallion rests on a prized clear ivory ground, surrounded by a blossom-laden main border of luminous robins egg blue. It is venerably preserved in extremely good condition at significantly over a century of age. Learn About This Rug Type
