This is an antique Serapi rug woven in North West Persia at the end of the 19th century circa 1890. This piece has an all-over geometric floral design with a small center floral motif enclosed in an oval-shaped turquoise-coloured outline. Serapis are highly coveted by decorators and rug connoisseurs for their highly decorative designs that can be incorporated in any modern or classical setting. The border of this rug is designed with abstract large-scaled alternating coloured crab-shaped motifs interconnected by vines and features protruding paisley motif at each end of the crab’s legs. The blue background of the border creates a contrast against the red field and balances the overall highly intricate design of this carpet.
This piece has been woven on a cotton foundation and made using wool pile and all-natural vegetable dyes.
