Bergama rugs have long been beloved for their freedom of design and extraordinary dye work with seldom-found, breathtaking hues. This frisson-inducing dynamo of a rug possesses joyous energy amplified by its mature, vivid natural palette with luxury hues of sea green, magenta, and beaming saffron gold, set off by superlative wool. The cerulean field is skillfully color-shaded, resembling a waterfall where an effulgent crimson jewel medallion houses delicately rendered abstract flora. Delightfully synchronized boteh forms in the corners intensify this already exciting work. Idiosyncratic variations of color and design in the walnut border vivify the cubistic carnations and crocuses. Abstracted animal's heads flank a singular zig-zag pattern on ivory, and tiny stylized dragons adorn the outer stripe. The condition of this eminently collectible rug, with a mostly heavy pile, show how well-loved it has been.
