Late 19th Century
Uncompromising craftsmanship and joyful artistry are the much-loved hallmarks of the best antique Serapis. Here, these qualities are given a highly inventive turn through the infusion of novel and adventurous design elements, most notably in the kaleidoscopic medallion and multiple overlapping cornerpieces. Time-softened natural colors, enhanced by extensive use of abrash, bring even greater immediacy and depth to this incredibly compelling performance. 19th century Serapis in the 9x16 size that is perfect for elongated spaces and wide corridors are virtually never seen.
