11' 1" x 12' 5" Late 19th Century
(“NEW ACQUISITION")A stunningly symmetrical, large scale, geometric eight pointed flower head medallion sits at the center of this room sized, high decorative Serapi carpet. The anchor pendants fastened at the top and bottom are connected to the rectilinear vine work adorning the hexagonal field, flush with an inconspicuous abrash (artistic color striation) lost on the casual observer. Angular and remarkably symmetrical vine work continues in the corner spandrels of this antique Heriz, a hallmark of the genre and an attractive incentive for interior decorators and connoisseurs. Clearly articulated samovar and floral patterns fill out the surrounding indigo border, echoing the hues found in the medallion and providing a compositional balance to the piece.
