(High-Collectible) (“NEW ACQUISITION")This unusually long, virtuoso carpet signed by the noted workshop "Khasati Brothers" is a magnificently preserved specimen of the best 19th century Court carpet weaving. Meant to be a consummate floor covering for an important room, it was created to provide the ambiance of understated luxury for its discerning patron. The fascinating, engaging design presents a multiple medallion pattern on a mindbogglingly dense blanket of small blossoms. This multiple medallion format consists in alternating rows of cream and midnight indigo medallions that further alternate between two shapes, creating a magnificent dance between them. Dusty rose and soft green fill every small outlined flower for a dazzling level of detail and clarity. This captivating performance is preserved in superb condition and was used as the formal dining room carpet in the collectors' London home. Learn About This Rug Type
