NEW ARRIVAL!
A magnificent array of harmonious colors and novel combinations of disparate tribal rug patterns draw the eye deep into this extraordinary Kuba antique rug with a very seldom encountered Harshang (dragon and blossom) antique carpet design in the field. Within the fluid vinery of this Persian rug, lively rosettes with geometric split plamette motifs are incorporated into the field’s allover pattern. The innovation of the tribal rug weavers is evident in the Kufic border pattern, typically encountered in Perpedil antique rugs.
