A rockstar Serapi, from P E R S I A, this tribal and magnificent rug stands out from the crowd and at first glance, you'll see why. Woven in the NW near Mt. Sabalon, these are some of the most in demand rugs because they have wild design that is so attractive to us all. The word Serapi is attributed to the finest examples of the Heriz area and these rugs date back to the late 19th Century.
You can see remarkable and powerful medallions and motifs on this rug with exquisite natural dyes that vary. The medallions flanked on sides of the amazing central medallion in coral and french blue and the top and bottom medallions each have their own shades of blue, due to the different batches of natural dyes used over time from weaving this rug. It has spaced and open design, allowing the art to breath and stand alone with quite a presence.
This Serapi was definitely woven in a small workshop on the family level. It has crispy design, a floppy handle with large-scale design and geometric power. It is one of the most distinct rugs in our collection.
All natural, vegetable dyed wool. Worn. From circa 1870-1880.
Please note: One tiny patch on the bottom left corner of the rug.
