Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery") Exemplary Ferahan rugs in excellent condition, such as this piece with its very finely knotting and incredibly skilled craftsmanship, exceptionally detailed drawing, and luminous jewel-tone colors, are extremely difficult to find. Against an exquisitely adorned field of deeply saturated indigo shifting to dark umber at the top, a fluid, uncommonly delicate assortment of incandescent gold flowering vinery provides an ethereal, organic filigree. Elegant, shimmering blossoms and pear-toned bottle vases elaborate the profusion of this field design. Seamlessly drawing together the entire composition, a subtly diverse, exotic palette of rose, cinnabar, apricot, cerulean, and lilac harmoniously interplay. A slight patina gained over 135 years adds sharpness of definition, while the ivory based main border with its collection of warm-toned flowerheads contribute an upbeat luminosity at the edges of this sumptuous area rug.
