Serapi rugs entered the market in the early 19th century. Known for their strength and durability, Serapi rugs were weaved with silky wool that gave them a smooth, alluring texture. These rugs typically focus on details: floral patterns, diamonds, curvilinear lines, and medallions are common patterns. An antique Persian Serapi rug is featured in the upcoming Oriental Rugs from American Estates auction, presented by Material Culture. The rug has a dark red color with one large border of alternating red and blue flowers.
Several other types of rugs are also highlighted in the sale, including an antique Heriz rug. Slightly more coarse than Serapi rugs, Heriz rugs have similar floral patterns. The presented lot has a light blue base color with a dark blue border. Among the featured lots is a large Chinese blue and pink Peking rug featuring a central medallion design and an outer band of naturalist patterns. An antique Oushak rug with subtle shading in salmon, pink, and blue and an oversized Bakhtiari rug will be on offer as well. Antique Kerman, Indo-Chinese, and Moroccan rugs are also included in the sale. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Invaluable.
