(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“New Acquisition Sampling") Very large Persian Serapis are extremely difficult to find, especially when boasting such great age and individual character. This over 150-year-old representative of this beloved style is not only of the great, seldom-found 13-½ x 19-½ size, but is also resplendent and casually elegant in its more curvilinear pattern language. Rather than employing a traditional dark blue medallion, its center piece is based in a unique,eye-catching gelded hue, complemented by vibrant powder blue vinery. This antique Serapi carpet demonstrates an aesthetic magnitude that is rarely experienced in carpets of grand size. Learn About This Rug Type
