Abhoring spaciousness, the weaver placed finely drawn flowers in a myriad of sizes covering every square inch. The etched drawing of the central medallion is particularly exciting.

Also tantalizing are the rich shades of cranberry red and warm buff. This sophisticated turn-of-the-20th-century rug offers heavy pile to enjoy many decades of enjoyment. Learn About This Rug Type
