3rd Quarter, 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) This highly original, archetypal room-size Serapi fully embodies the uniquely fluid, spacious artistry that stands as a hallmark of early 19th century weaving in this cherished style. The virtuoso medallion with its innermost rosette and completely one-of-a-kind free-flowing channels meandering toward dissimilar, spontaneously outlined compartments is remarkable. The crimson reserve is notably open and potent, with only the thinnest, most delicate abstract tracery filling the space. The complex main border meander forms an equally compelling contrast and frame. Learn About This Rug Type
