FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
6' 8" x 10' 6"

("New Arrivals Gallery") In attractive small room-size dimensions, this cheerful ivory field Ferahan antique carpet is a kaleidoscope of eye-pleasing color combinations, playing off its persimmon and fern green primary tonalities. The proudly joyful lobed medallion and elongated pendants evoke a stately command of the winsome field with its myriad, crisply drawn leaves, buds, and flowerheads in an astonishingly diverse chromatic display. The slightly undersized spandrels allow for a larger expanse of ivory field, thereby increasing the overall luminosity, while strong contrasts of light and dark amplify this exciting visual composition. Its lovely starflower and rosette meander of the main border sensitively introduces a complementary scale between the medallion and the field decoration. Each artistic choice was the best move, culminating in a very striking carpet, happily preserved with heavier pile condition.
