About: An incredible antique piece that is in MINT condition from the Northwest of the greatest rug weaving country in the world. This piece is very unusual in the fact that its colors are rare - salmon and green in the corners with a nice handsome red and dark and icy blues with beige to soften it up - very pretty. Huge center medallion with anchoring finials poking out to add a nice elongated focal point to the rug, and then the fillers that flank the medallion create movement thanks to the vines and other geometric village motifs. Deep indigo/navy blue border to frame the rug with iconic Serapi design border - even in the border alone, you can see so many nice contrasting colors with the warm field, giving the entire rug a fantastic balance and composition. This is a real art, truly well done, and beautiful for the eyes, feet, and soul! If you can take this slightly slender European size - really consider this as an option; stunning rug.
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.
Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!
We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
