This impressive, tribal Oriental rug is called a SERAPI design, and it has a rich look that is impactful in an understated way. This oriental was hand-knotted in Turkey, in the 1930's, so it is about 90+ years old. (We used it to stage an upper bracket home that has sold; after the house sells we take the rugs back and sell them for a portion of their cost to reduce the initial staging fees, which is why it is available now.)

This SERAPI Rug is in excellent condition, with no wear spots/low spots, or stains. It features a rich and sophisticated design and color pallet. The exact size is 7.7x5.6, and it features a three larger brick-red diamonds, over a larger navy field. And there is another smaller red diamond set within navy at each corner of the rug. The rug was constructed using vegetable dyed wools for a softer, richer look than the harsher looking/less expensive, chemical dyed rugs used in newer pieces. This is truly a beautiful and unique piece, that can be used in many ways. And it is fantastic!

This rug is hand-knotted, and features 140 KPSI (knots per square inch), with a total of about 1,600,000 knots, and it took about 1,200 hours of labor to hand knot this piece, in constructing it. It is of excellent quality, consistent with what we would expect in a very good quality Persian Oriental rug. We selected this rug for its beautiful and impressive design, and it would be fantastic in an entryway, a study or office, a family room, or in a master or guest bedroom. The beauty of this rug is that it is so versatile, its design works perfectly in a modern, transitional, contemporary, or traditional home. This SERAPI is a beautiful piece for someone who wants an impressive rug that will enhance their home on an understated way. At retail this rug is about $1800; JUST $675 here.

Thanks.
