(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This connoisseur-caliber antique Serapi offers perhaps the most explosive yet refined medallion we have ever encountered in this esteemed village style. Each sharply incised indigo, ivory or powder blue petal radiates from an inner reserve that seems to vibrate with intensity, brilliantly framed by atypically elegant grand pendants in stunningly abrashed turquoise to sky blue. Naïve yet naturalistic tendrils of elegant vinery in linked ivory cornerpieces reveal incredible fineness for a Serapi carpet. The border is especially spacious and elegant, illuminated by a nuanced, ambitious palette that masterfully blends periwinkle, garnet and even burnished gold with perfect success.
