SERAPI, Northwest Persian

Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery")Possibly made for a wide, very grand corridor, this majestic Serapi offers a modern palette dominated by ivory field and Tuscan gold, elaborated by highly prized, time-softened secondary tones. Extremely well-proportioned and filled with exuberant, archetypal artistry, its monumental orange hyacinth medallion imbues this carpet with a palpable graciousness that is supported by clear cerulean, teal green, and warm copper.
The beauty of the entire palette is accentuated by extremely subtle to surprisingly definite color shifts of abrash. The Serapi style is a long held favorite of our clients, beloved for its dignified design and evocative geometric drawing.
