(High-Collectible) Of very early provenance, this heartwarming, highly innovative 4x6 Persian Ferahan rug displays a casual elegance and subtle, atmospheric palette inviting quiet contemplation. Its sophisticated repeated "Bird and Vase" pattern (look closely to see the extremely delicately rendered bird forms against the burnished gold field) includes evocative hues of coral, teal, khaki and leaf green, dramatizing its rhythmic latticework design. This extremely rare High-Collectible rug was woven some 170 years ago in an era that supported great artistic exploration and sublime colors in its weavers. It has clearly been cherished over some seven generations, as it has been maintained in extremely good condition. Learn About This Rug Type
