Late 19th Century
Brilliantly conceived classical Serapi carpets such as this serene example have an ardent following. This eye-catching work offers all of the most beloved attributes desired by their fan base. Its eight-petalled radial medallion is the seat from which the exquisite beauty of secondary botanical motifs unfolds. The nature of its cleanly rendered verdure evokes the sensibilities of the City rugs, particularly its elaborate curvilinear border and elegant organic forms in the field and spandrels. Its luxuriant quality, beguiling naturally dyed mature colors, and subtle, continually changed artful motifs make it an unforgettably sophisticated statement. Evocative, skillful striation, known as abrash, especially in the main border, adds another layer of striking depth to the design. This compelling fusion of harmonious color and design has many stunning applications in the home. Primarily where activity is concentrated in a seating area allowing the sublime aesthetic presence to be appreciated at leisure. Delightfully, this striking piece comes to us in exceptional condition.
