FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
4ft 6in x 6ft 7in
NEW ARRIVAL! This consummately crafted 19th century Ferahan Sarouk is a strongly collectible example of the symmetrical, floral perfection that could be reached by the town workshops of the Ferahan region, that rival the finest Persian city weaving of that time. Expressed in its sonorous palette of russet brown, midnight indigo and teal green, a riveting medallion anchors the evocative splendor of the field and border. Extraordinarily fine knotting, closely cut pile and crystal clear drawing of even its most diminutive motifs invest this collectible Persian town rug with an atmosphere of ethereal grace. Additional allures of this 140-year-old Oriental rug are its silky wool and excellent, even medium pile condition.
