("New Arrivals Gallery")Only rarely do we find a rug that is such a one-in-the-world composition as this nearly 150-year-old piece, imbued with both an ethereal harmony between its graceful, entirely individual design and equally unique, subtle coloration. Its exotic color palette encompasses prized lilac, champagne, grayed teal, muted peach, olive green, and an extremely soft coral blush within its field, which is dramatically counter-balanced by its cardinal red accents and main border. These sophisticated gradations of hue, punctuated by the application of strategic dark outlining, add a sense of great dimensionality and further enhance this utterly entrancing composition, whose great impact belies its diminutive size.
