Of great interest to connoisseurs of tribal Oriental rugs, this nearly 150-year-old South Persian Qashqai tribal is replete with the whimsical charm of its nomadic origins.

Serapi, 9ft 11in x 12ft 10in, Circa 1875. A captivating, very spacious arrangement of graphic motifs infuses this tour-de-force 135-year-old antique Persian Serapi carpet with a tremendous presence. Its expansive grand medallion is joined only by equally large-scale secondary motifs, generously arranged so as never to appear crowded or constrained. A rare desert-inspired palette of terracotta and sandstone tones perfectly complements this atmosphere.

BORDJALOU KAZAK, Southeast Caucasian, 5ft 1in x 12ft 0in, 2nd Quarter, 19th Century. This important tribal rug presents an extraordinarily rare design of which there is only one published example, in the book by pre-eminent rug scholar, Ulrich Schurmann, Oriental Carpets (1966). Both pieces are clearly the work of pastoral nomads, using a portable loom that was collapsed and then reassembled when the tribe moved between its winter and summer grazing grounds.
