Antique Ferahan Carpet from Persia

FERAHAN
West Central Persian
4ft 0in x 6ft 3in
Circa 1850

Exhibiting a supremely poignant, refreshingly original design, this unique, quite early Oriental antique Ferahan rug displays exhilarating artistry and a subtle, yet altogether gratifying color palette. Entirely bewitching, this small 19th century Persian area rug’s allure is the asymmetrical layout of its sculpted allover design against its gently shaded field ranging in colors from sand to taupe. Its subdued yet clear tones only occur when the passage of time has matured natural dyes.
