FERAHAN "BLOSSOM RUG", West Central Persian

117cm x 190cm
2nd Quarter, 19th Century
(High-Collectible) This 180-year-old masterwork is an inimitable, one-of-a-kind art piece in the prized 19th-century Persian Ferahan style. It has an unforgettable impact with its unmatched magical design and a prodigious rainbow of color. The interplay of the strawberry, apricot, and pale coral blossoms is endlessly fascinating, as are the varying horizontal waves of rare apple and celadon greens that fill the foliage. Plum hues, stemming from Tyrian purple (the rareness and most costly dye seen in antique rugs) can be seen throughout. Its Mille Fleur ("Thousand Flower") design is at once overflowing with innovative moments of inspiration. Motifs move from spacious at the bottom to more condensed at the top, dispelling any possibility of a sense of repetition. Learn About This Rug Type
