Persian Serapi antique rug in Washington D.C. historic colonial home

Sitting Room in a Registered Historical Landmark is Embellished with an Antique Persian Serapi Carpet, the Style Most Often Seen in Colonial Homes

This lovingly preserved 18th-century space becomes a delightful world of its own when combined with the handcrafted heritage of an early Persian Oriental folk art carpet.  The Serapi rug’s time-softened terracotta red ground instantly harmonizes with the authentic painted wood paneling and even the dress of the little girl in the naïve portrait.  This similarity is not coincidental–all three are the result of colors wrought from traditional dye stuffs in use before the modern era.
