FERAHAN, West Central Persian
4' 5" x 6' 11"
135cm x 211cm
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This first-rate Ferahan is a consummately crafted visual feast in remarkable full-pile condition at some 125 years old. Ennobled by fluid abrash and incredibly luminous, lanolin-rich wool, its warm, deeply saturated jewel-tone colors are literally ablaze. Ruby red transitions to carnelian in the uniquely elongated reserve, while waves of rare teal, cobalt and aquamarine in the elegant corner pieces add the perfect counterpoint. Its extremely fine knotting and closely shorn pile bring great sharpness to each different blossom type, capturing minute changes in perspective. The controlled, elegant meander makes this one of the most exquisite renditions of the classical serpentine border pattern we have seen. The elegant borders are a stately finish to this extraordinary expression Ferahan mastery: the elite weaving style of the Persian town weaving tradition. Learn About This Rug Type
