(High-Decorative) This is a one-in-the-world, strikingly original oversize Persian Serapi carpet with a magnificent display of naturally dyed, celebrative colors supported by a luminescent royal blue base. Its all-over pattern is virtually never seen among large-scale antique Serapi carpets, which consistently feature expansive center medallions. Here, the complexity of the field pattern is masterfully counterbalanced by the grand scale of its repeating cartouche border design. Its excellent condition make it the ideal choice for a heavily used space. Learn About This Rug Type
