(High-Decorative) (“New Acquisition Sampling") The allure of 19th century Senneh rugs, almost always of area size proportions, is their imaginably fine weave that evokes a profound quiet delicacy. The soft earth-toned palette of this 140-year-old piece is enhanced with an inviting shade of cinnabar red and grounded with the deep blues in the corners. Across its field and corner spandrels is a whimsical variation on a classical repeating blossom and diamond pattern called ‘Herati’. Skillful use of the ‘ghost’ colors, those hues which are very subtle and almost disappear into the background ivory, add dimension artistically to the rug as a whole while beckoning to view it closely where its petit point knotting is most astonishing and its muted nuances most be enjoyed.(INQUIRE ABOUT THIS RUG AT CLAREMONT 2, 1-800-883-1815) Learn About This Rug Type
