(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("Spring/Summer 2019 Print Catalog, p.26")A majestic, niched medallion, broad corner spandrels and a spaciously rendered rosette and oakleaf border—the classic, perfectly rendered Serapi format—here absolutely shimmers with its strawberry-hued ground, abundance of celadon green and powder blue. Superb abrash color striation imparts a palpable sense of subtle movement and depth that is particularly noticeable in the carpet’s entrancing field. Saturated denim and indigo are used for the carpet’s compositional anchors, guiding the viewer’s eye through this dexterous juxtaposition. Delightfully, it remains in excellent condition and offers a splendid, glowing patina at nearly 150 years of age. Learn About This Rug Type
