This ornate rug features a central medallion with scalloped cornices and a curvilinear floral design. The borders are both composed of floral meanders. Of special note is the complexity and richness of the main border's floral meander. It also includes a central cartouche at the bottom with the weaver's signature. The color palette is features shades of maroon, soft camel, and indigo blue.
In very good condition for its considerable age. Some worn pile on the bottom left and throughout, foundation still intact. Low pile, with a sturdy handle.
