This beautiful tribal Oriental rug (or runner), was hand-knotted in the 1930's in Turkey. (The pictures do not do it justice). This is called a SERAPI design, typified by the larger geometric elements on the field and the earth tone color pallet. It was constructed with vegetable dyed wool for a rich, deeper color, versus the harsh, cheap, chemical dyes that have more of a flat look. It is in excellent condition with a full pile, and no wear spots or stains. It is a very rich and understated looking rug.

It is offered for sale, because the City Lakes staged home, in which it was featured, has now sold. (We take these rugs back after staging and sell them for a portion of their cost, to charge a lower staging fee.) The exact size is 9.1x4.2, so it can be used as an area rug, or as a runner. It has a brick-red field, with an ivory border picture framing a larger ebony colored keystone geometric design in the middle. The accent colors are ivory, golden brown, light taupe, navy, rose, and medium persian blue in the center medallion. This rug is visually stunning and absolutely beautiful. Note the rich detail woven into this rug. As stated above, this rug was constructed of vegetable dyed wools for a deeper, richer look than the harsher looking/less expensive, chemical dyes used in new and lesser quality rugs. It features 140 KPSI (knots per square inch), with a total of about 1,100,000 knots, and it took about 1800 hours of labor to hand knot this piece, to construct it.

We selected this SERAPI for its rich tribal design that projects an impressive feeling, without being too formal. This beautiful piece could be fantastic in your home in many locations: entryway, living room, family room, bedroom (a the foot of a bed or beside it); office, etc. It is an exceptional piece that will make a rich and impressive statement in your home or business, wherever you decide to use it. At retail this rug is about $2,700-$2900; JUST $675 here, but cash only, please. Email or text me to view it, or call me. Thanks.
