(High-Decorative) Coming to us after having been in a single family for generations, this magnificent rich brick red oriental room size carpet offers a striking pattern. The wide ivory scalloping at the top and bottom of the field skillfully bring the warm reserve into dramatic focus. The border design is exceptionally tribal for the antique Serapi style. Geometricized leaves and variations on a single blossom theme are irregularly placed along the otherwise unadorned ground, artistically completing this superb example of the Persian Serapi tradition.
