FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
8' 7" x 11' 8"
262cm x 356cm
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
This elegant Ferahan Sarouk carpet offers all the admired attributes of this renowned style: fine knotting, rich and varied, naturally dyed colors, and a stately yet free-floating design. Inversely positioned anchor pendants, in a delicate shade of Egyptian golden marble, elegantly rest on a softly glowing carnelian reserve, accentuated by a wealth of unusual tonalities such as cerulean sky, brass, mahogany, and tangerine. Admirably dramatic contrasts of color and etched outlining are beloved signature features, here showcased in the field's relaxed spaciousness. This commodiousness is juxtaposed to its centerpiece's exquisite intricacy and vertically contiguous spandrels with their unique patterning of large-scale palmettes rising forth from under intricate minor borders. While their numbers grow scarcer in today's market, artistically inimitable early Ferahan Sarouk carpets such as this become ever more popular.
