(High-Decorative) This captivating nearly 150-year-old Persian Ferahan rug, while a prized size for many areas in the home, also offers a triumph of artistic departures. Transparent medallion and corner pieces replace Ferahanís penchant for strong architectural field elements. Hanging fruit conjures up Tabriz Garden rugs. Its borderís motif bears similarity to Caucasian icons, certainly never seen in a Persian town rug. The intentional vertical asymmetry is another nod to Caucasian artistic achievements, but the deeply dyed tones of crimson, russet, persimmon, apple green and royal blue represent quintessential Ferahan color.
