Two anthracite borders with garlands of leaves frame the main border of old gold with polychrome floral scrolls. Two "reserves" with flowered vases enclose the central ivory field, with delicate floral spandrels.

The motif of this carpet is inspired by a stamp dated 1894 with a very similar design.
