(“Fall/Winter New Arrivals Event“) Early Serapis with exquisite, age softened desert tones and an unique artistic expression falling between tribal and town weaving are seldom seen these days. The natural grandeur of this rug's powerful medallion and pendants awash in graceful tones continues through the beautiful articulation of the botanical field motifs and the very spacious placement of the border elements. Every facet throughout the carpet is drawn with countless slight individual variations that reveal a gifted spontaneity. This large room size piece testifies to a precious sensitivity that could inimitably balance visually powerful and delicate elements, now lost, that endeared itself to the hearts of those who lived with them.
