Northwest Persian Antique Carpet
9' 6" x 11' 5" (290cm x 348cm) Circa 1875
This astonishing, nearly 150-year-old Serapi carpet excels in its superb quality with an exceptionally fine weave. Its spacious pattern of overscale, individually conceived motifs is highly desirable among antique Serapi carpets. It presents an inspired centerpiece that is suggestive of a glowing sun symbol, along with a robust, crystalline color palette that brilliantly supports its heliocentric theme with a singular corn silk medallion, burnt coral reserve and golden camel corner spandrels. In this particularly geometric Serapi, the botanical elements throughout are completely angular to charmingly express its rustic aesthetic. Each motif is articulately rendered in crisp detail. Capable of transforming an environment, this extraordinary art piece remains in outstanding condition with heavier pile, very little wear, and no notable restoration, allowing its salient creativity to endure.
