FERAHAN SAROUK

Remarkable harmony and superlative artistry raise this exceptional antique Ferahan Sarouk carpet to remarkable creative heights. A luminous goldenrod-toned field, augmented by understated, yet continues gradations in color, constructs a luxuriant backdrop for the sublime deep azure center medallion. Spacious, finely drawn botanical vinery adds a graceful latticework throughout the antique carpet, enclosed by voluminous borders. The result is a magnificent work of Oriental carpet weaving, which displays profound grace and tremendous visual depth.
