("New Arrivals Gallery") This beloved style from the Persian Sarouk region emerged in the very early years of the 20th century, and is known for its luxurious, glistening surface that is unbelievably soft to the touch. Revealing great artistic depth, this magnificent piece offers a dramatic spectrum of harmonious tones in the lyrically executed, fanciful botanical structures that abound; spaciously placed and stunningly projected on a shimmering, deftly striated deep copper ground. Skillfully wrought accent colors, including dark cobalt, soft golden wheat, azure, bronze and buttercup adorn the gracefully fluid, balanced swathes of sinuous vinery, feathery fronds and blossoming boughs. Plushly piled with sumptuously radiant lamb's wool and in exceptional condition after more than a century, the superior craftsmanship of this versatile, distinguished room size carpet allows for a lifetime of delightful discovery and experience.
