(High-Collectible) Boasting extraordinary artistry in a large size that is literally never seen in antique Chi Chi rugs, this exceptional 150-year-old piece of extremely rare size would be a coveted acquisition for the mature Caucasian collectors. Its weaving is extraordinarily fine, with an extremely refined, silky surface that emanates a deep glow. Its consummate workmanship allows each facet of its intricate design to stand in crisp clarity, including its many minute details. Note the innermost ivory guard border with its atypical design of more elemental repeating blossoms, which stands in masterful juxtaposition to the sophistication of the rest of the border suite. Heavy pile condition despite great age is yet another strong suit of this first-rate collector’s piece. Learn About This Rug Type
