FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
3' 4" x 5' 0"
Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) (“NEW ACQUISITION") This charming antique Ferahan Sarouk features a bucolic display that subverts the more traditional pattern of the genre. The drawing is more spontaneous throughout the field, and the small animal figures in the corner spandrels and lower reserve indicate a rural provenance origin or perhaps semi-nomadic lifestyle. Within each section the floral designs embody more rugged and geometric characteristics, and their larger scale appearance provides a beautifully spacious arrangement that never becomes burdened with superfluous detail. The negative space between motifs becomes an additionally captivating focus in its own right, thanks to subtle abrash (artistic color striation) that adds a satisfying depth to the piece Learn About This Rug Type
