With its subtle coloration and perfection of formal stylistics, this imposing carpet reflects the high standards achieved by pile-weaving centers in the northern Arak region during the Qajar Renaissance. The complex filigree repeat that stands out against the off-white ground is indebted to the local tradition. Between a row of fan-shaped blossoms and lancet leaves, there stretches a scrolling vine with blossoms, small rosettes, leaves, and floral embellishments. The main border evidences great skill and the secondary borders are typical for the stylistic canon of this province.
