(High-Decorative) (“NEW ARRIVAL") Serapi carpets from 1860 and before are rare and offer a particularly evocative visual experience that springs from the style’s resonant palette illumined by a glowing patina. Along with a more free-form sense of design their presence in the home is compelling in a way that can lift a décor, whether contemporary or traditional, out of the expected. In this outstanding example, elongated proportions are especially harmoniously handled, with prominent, radiating pendants and exquisitely large-scale leaf and rosette main border becoming a central artistic focus of attention This exquisite carpet has even, lower pile and a remarkable patina, the result of careful use over its 150 years of existence.
