This is an authentic, circa 1880’s Serapi Persian (Iran) fine wool carpet, the most sought after and desirable of all investment grade rugs. This 10 foot by 12 foot rug is in excellent condition for its 150 year old age with an even low wool pile, both ends complete, with an open design and high quality fine weaving. The rug has the scarcely seen, rare light blue main border. The rug has large gabled stepped medallion with rare sky blue, rose, with red field, ivory medallion, and corners. The rug is all wool with natural dyes being hand woven. This circa 1880 Serapi Iran Persian carpet is highly collectible with this being a fine example. Measures 10 foot by 12 foot.
