(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery") We have never seen another rug quite like this in the Serapi style! The long-time collectors we originally acquired this dazzling 19th-century art rug from expressed being as confounded and elated as we are by this highly innovative use of the age-old Tree of Life format. Extending from a weighty central Palm trunk with bark drawn to simulate how it appears in nature, a fanciful diversity of explosive boughs extends outward in every direction, each distinguished by intensely evocative pastel and earth tones. This rug's saturated indigo ground and classic cartouche border against a carnelian red base intensify the freshness and impact of these inspired artistic departures and flourishes. Always cherished, this nearly 150-year-old High-Collectible rug remains in heavy pile condition. Learn About This Rug Type
