FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
9' 1" x 11' 8"
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) The unique snowflake-like center medallion of this superb Persian Ferahan Sarouk antique carpet emerges from an intricately patterned field of stunningly etched blossoms. The carnelian red ground, undulating with intentional tonal variations, reflects the many changes seen in nature and evokes a tremendous sense of visual depth. The skillful use of levels of contrast throughout this singular 19th century Oriental rug, such as the use of the ivory outlining that encloses the midnight blue areas, enhances its artistic prowess. The extensive range of scale from the tiniest of flowers to the grand interplay between the medallion and corner pieces is sure to delight the eye of the seasoned Oriental rug connoisseur.
