Late 19th Century Red and Blue Indigo Serapi Carpet

About

Though woven near the turn of the century, this dynamic Serapi carpet preserves elements of drawing which are centuries earlier. In many ways, it demonstrates the link between Northwest Persian traditions and weaving in the neighboring Caucasus. A Classic Persian central medallion, rendered in deep indigo, is paired with a sky-blue outer border composed of serrated leaves and rosettes in a rendition of the reciprocal 'Gothic border' type. Four colorful palmettes are drawn against the madder red field in a style seen in the earliest strain of Caucasian blossom carpets from circa 1600. The anchors of the medallion are articulated with a floral form encountered in a rare group of eighteenth-century Northwest Persian carpets. Their inclusion in this piece is intriguing, yet seemingly right at home.
