(Connoisseur-Caliber) Lovers of geometric oriental carpets find deep satisfaction in top-level antique Serapis such as this exceptional 140-year-old representative. A majestic harmony is created through the powerful symmetry and sumptuous earth tones of a series of nested medallions, expanding outward toward a richly embellished ivory main border. Stylized floral accents are intermittently placed at each level, and discreetly patterned secondary borders provide fascinating additional detail. A striking use of rich green and deep teal increases the allure of this breathtakingly beautiful oversize carpet. Learn About This Rug Type
