(High-Collectible) This mid-19th century Serapi room size rug perfectly captures the deeply personal aesthetic that makes the seldom encountered, extremely early oriental carpets in this style avidly prized by antique rug connoisseurs. Its unusually spacious, overscale design is replete with numerous hand-drawn details that reveal the individual creativity of its inspired weavers. An exotically rendered eight-pointed medallion proudly stands at the center of a luminous antique ivory ground. Its many inconsistencies of design in the cornerpieces and borders highlight this inventive, spirited approach, and its extensive use of rich coral, teal and carnelian blue all serve to bring even greater majesty to the composition.
