An impeccably constructed over-size Lavar rug from the 19th century is so densely packed with elaborate florals that its background in ivory and rust red hardly shows. With its historical design roots going back to the interiors of Qajar dynasty, this stunning Lavar carpet is made to reflect palatial grandeur and extravagance and to leave an impression of splendor and elegance. All of its areas including its grand medallion, its field, corner pieces and multiple borders are filled with delicately curving elegant floral patterns, executed with impeccable precision in an impressive array of colors and the resulting effect of this densely packed, complex and meticulously rendered design is not an intense look however. Rather, it is a mesmerizing, ethereal kaleidoscopic view of floral splendor in the most gorgeous and delicate hues of dark and light pink, ivory, salmon and yellow. The multiple guard strips and the main border, which is typically larger in a Lavar, are also decorated all over with intricate floral motifs that are painstakingly detailed to perfection.

This exquisite over-size antique Lavar carpet from the 19th century, is inimitably beautiful with its extraordinarily fine-weave, easily recognizable rare design and its innovative, soft and delicate colors. It garners immediate attention and admiration. It is a most prized, hard-to-find, highly decorative and collectible piece of woven artistry that would bring palatial grandeur with elegance to any interior.
