SERAB CAMELHAIR, Northwest Persian
4' 1" x 6' 4" Circa 1900 Price: $13,000
Rugs using generous amounts of undyed camelhair in their production offer an earthy yet luxurious ambiance unlike any other of the Persian weaving traditions. This superbly crafted, 125-year-old Serab small rug offers a tone on tone field design broken by intermittent aubergine medallions. Blush and turquoise tones augment its lovely natural color palette. Antique Camelhair rugs of this artistic magnitude and superb, heavy-pile condition were only occasionally woven and are seldom found today. This unforgettable piece is both extremely eye-catching and in fabulous floor condition.
