Description

rare Vintage oriental Abduction from the Seraglio / Abduction from the Palace / Abduction from the Serai wall rug
Illustrated wall carpet from 1960s (in the 1960s my grandma received it as a gift)

STORY:
"Abduction from the Seraglio" is an opera whose music was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, premiered on absolute on July 16, 1782, at the "National Theatre" in Vienna. The original title is "Die Entführung aus dem Serail".

The story is about a girl, Constance, which was closed by Pasha Selim in his palace. Belmonte, a young Spanish nobleman, wanted to release her, but he did not have access to the palace. So, he faked as one of the best known Italian architects of the time, taking advantage of Pasha Selim love for architecture.

At midnight, Belmonte enters the palace garden (greenhouse) and using a staircase descends to a boat moored to the shore. The two lovers are trapped, Pasha Selim arrives, and Belmonte and Constance take the blame on each in order to save the other one - which shows the proof of love, each wanting to save the other. Impressed by the strength of their love, Pasha Selim forgives and gives them back the freedom. On the second horse is Pedrillo, Belmonte's butler. It is a lovely representation of a story so old.

If you would like to buy it, but you do not have available funds for now, please let me know and I will reserve the item on your name until decided deadline of payment. Please ask for more photos in order to see more details! If you are very, like really interested, we can negociate a bit the price.

Status: The carpet was wall hanged on the wall on two sides, and kept there for many-many years. When my grandma changed the house, she did not used it anymore, so was stored within a closet for the rest of the years til now. It has signs of usage, please check out the photos, item is sold as it is. There are loose yarns / threads here and there (not so many for its age), but they can be restored / sewed. When it was washed I think color came out a bit, because it has a small pink stain. With small restaurations (seweing), this piece is a great asset - if I knew how, I would have restored it myself for you, but I do not have the skills and I do not want to damage it.
