This exceptional Serapi carpet demonstrates the continuity and evolution of design and weaving traditions of Northwest Persia. The scale of ornament in this piece is smaller and more refined than most of its type and for the size of the piece may even be characterized as delicate. Of particular interest is the central medallion. Its cartouche shape, outlined by an oscillating white cloud-band derived border and distinctive branched flowers, is clearly evocative of smaller cartouches found in seventeenth and early eighteenth century classical and post-classical Northwest Persian medallion carpets, most notably a celebrated piece in the Keir collection and closely related examples in the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
Minor restoration to ends and edges.
