(High-Decorative) Very occasionally do we encounter an area size Oriental rug that subtly reinvents the traditional motifs of its style, both breaking and building upon earlier designs. This dazzling Persian Ferahan rug is one such piece, offering a diagonal vinery design that links the time-honored boteh ("Seed of Life") motif in innovative, unexpected ways in a virtually countless array of sumptuous hues. The exceptional fineness of weave and crystal-clear articulation of each design, most notably in the highly animated Guli Farang ("Foreign Flower") main border, bring further distinction to this extremely finely woven nearly 150-year-old rug.
