SERAB CAMELHAIR, Northwest Persian
6' 10" x 12' 10"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) This deeply impressive antique undyed camelhair Persian carpet boasts a sophisticated, yet graphic design and superb craftsmanship, attributes which Persian village weavers only occasionally achieved in their finest pieces. A highly engaging allover pattern is artfully presented with multiple diamond medallions filling individual niches abbreviated by the field’s edges. Clear articulation of each floral motif, and of the understated lattice that adds texture to the ground, are further proof of this carpet’s deep allure. Its 7x13 size is versatile and seldom encountered.
