("New Arrivals Gallery") Rarely encountered camel-tones are strategically employed in the field of this imaginatively conceived oversize antique Serapi, providing an immersive backdrop for the stylized palmettes and floral elements so beloved of this rug type. Bold abrash color shifts add compelling drama and dynamism to a brilliantly cohesive palette of warm vermillion, deep teal, midnight sapphire and luminescent azure. Its lengthy format consists of a jewel-shaped centerpiece extending into serrated trefoil pendants atop a cleverly niched hexagonal cobalt reserve, reminiscent of tribal influences. A spacious elemental border balances the more filled interior. Unusually narrow in relation to its length, this impressive one-in-the-world Serapi carpet in wonderful condition was likely commissioned for a grand space.
