(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 1, back cover) From a couple's magnificent sub-collection of Ferahans, this early, still well-preserved example offers quintessential Ferahan artistry with a magnificent medallion and myriad small flowers strewn across the field. Subtle abrash striation in the bordeaux-toned reserve adds another layer of exquisite, evocative detail. You are welcome to inquire about the many other Ferahans in a variety of sizes this new collection holds. Extraordinary balance pervades the composition. Each compositional zone offers distinctly different artistic surprises, while sharing dexterous symmetry and exquisitely clear drawing. Learn About This Rug Type
