FERAHAN, West Central Persian
4' 6" x 6' 5"
137cm x 196cm
The densely designed patterning of this mesmerizing mid-19th century Persian rug is consummately executed, a highly collectible, rare example of this renowned Ferahan style. Inimitably crafted revealing an unfathomable attention to detail, the composition is entirely devoted to an inconceivably petite point pattern. Here a repeating "Herati" latticework of minuscule blossoms and curling leaves create a sublime sense of visual movement and depth. A surprisingly slender naturally dyed celadon border quietly frames the composition and gives deference to the virtuosity that lies within it. Stunning on the wall, this greater than 150-year-old Oriental carpet remains very well preserved and could also be greatly enjoyed on the floor.
