3rd Quarter, 19th Century
Even among the very finely crafted 19th century Ferahan antique Persian rugs, seldom do we see such petite point design work and a shimmering naturally dyed palette of hues against a prized antique ivory ground. The intricate allover pattern of the field is based on nine elongated Pool of Infinity motifs (known in the market as the Keyhole design). These are asymmetrically placed, creating the illusion that they are moving vertically. Completely virtuoso in both pattern and color, it features borders create the perfect, delicately detailed frame for this highly sophisticated antique Ferahan oriental rug. Clearly deeply loved by all of its previous owners, it remains in extraordinary condition.
