This spectacular Antique Persian Serapi is a standout piece with a unique tale to tell. Hand Knotted in the rocky mountains of North-West Persia, these Serapi rugs show a distinct style specific to the Heriz region, featuring finer knotting and larger, more expansive designs than other rugs from this region.
These Antique Serapi rugs feature various design elements influenced by many traditions; for example, the large geometric motifs are similar to those woven by caucasian tribesmen, and the central medallion format takes its cues from Tabriz rug design.
The medallion on this Persian Serapi shows Islamic arch forms encompassing an array of geometric floral head patterns. The combination of reds and blues is typical of the Persian colour palette, which is especially prevalent in the large border area.
Overall this Antique Persian Serapi has a modest presence for a rug containing so many strong tribal patterns. This understated look makes it an excellent piece for more contemporary spaces.
