Woven over a century ago, this striking, inarguably singular Persian Serapi oversize carpet is distinguished in several ways. Its expansive size, casually elegant botanical imagery, and splendid color palette, especially its deep lapis blue field, are all attractive and rarely seen elements. Of particular note is the village rug's mesmerizing vermilion red central medallion holding a fully open green-blue lotus blossom. This oversize 120-year-old Persian carpet in extremely good condition offers time-softened, resonant hues would contribute an exceptional level of artfulness to a large room.
