An incredible mid-19th century Persian Serapi rug woven by a highly skilled master weaver! The central medallion is diamond in form with a deep indigo field. In the centre of the field is a large-scale flower with scrolling vines and leaves radiating out, woven in crimson, salmon, green and natural wool colors. The indigo diamond rests on a large crimson field of trolling vines and flowers in complementary wool to the medallion. Something to note is the use of wide open spaces between the flowers and vines in the crimson field. This lends an air of sophistication and thoughtful design on the part of the weaver, not typically seen in rugs of this . The border is contrasting, with a wide indigo stripe woven with flowers and vines, surrounded by multiple thinner floral and geometric stripes.
