(High-Decorative) Inventive and refined in every respect, this exceptionally well-balanced antique Laver Kirman carpet makes subtlety and grace its theme throughout. The rare multiple medallion pattern gives the impression of vast scale, as it appears to continue into infinity beyond the restraint of its borders. Strikingly rendered, repeating medallions anchor a mesmerizing field design, in which finely drawn botanical flourishes seem to advance and recede in the viewer's eye. Seasoned rug connoisseurs and novices alike are equally certain to admire its entirely original border motifs, in which singular cartouches are seamlessly fused with a fluid cloud band design. Extremely good condition is a further allure. Learn About This Rug Type
