(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This stunning Serapi with its exquisite color palette of earlier tonalities and pitch-perfect spacing is a quite rare offering in today's market. There is inspiration everywhere one looks, beginning with the handling of the center medallionís innermost disc, where a single, offset flower waits to be recognized. Surrounded by a celadon green, an 8-pointed star that connects with eight palmettes, the pattern continues to fascinate. Imbuing the entire carpet with a profound sense of depth, a graciously articulated court-inspired border design rests on a wondrous sea of striating waves of color that stretch horizontally from edge to edge. Its shorter, squarish shape is seldom found in Serapis, and allows for numerous uses from seating areas to entries to under a round dining table. Learn About This Rug Type
