FERAHAN, West Central Persian
3' 10" x 6' 10"
117cm x 208cm
Late 19th Century
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.
