(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This diminutive rug is both the earliest and one of the very most exciting pieces among our new arrivals. It presents an extremely early rendition of the elongated medallioned Surahani Baku design that is entirely unadulterated before it became standardized in later versions. Continual individual touches throughout the field and borders show that this is an immensely personal weaving created by an immensely gifted weaver. Ten major and secondary borders create a tour-de-force frame. Its painterly color palette is replete with utterly mature hues. At nearly 200 years old, it has been wonderfully preserved with a deep patina. Learn About This Rug Type
