Late 19th Century
This extraordinarily finely crafted, beautifully preserved 19th-century Ferahan carpet is an illustrious member of a highly celebrated weaving style in a much sought-after lighter color palette. Its coveted ivory ground displays an astonishing array of naturally dyed colors that animate the fascinating spectrum of a hand-drawn botanical wonderland that abundantly occupies a diamond latticework. A painstakingly knotted field of flowers fills the background of the sawtooth edging surrounding the reserve. Its coloration adeptly shifts from taupe to luminescent marine blue to rich moss green at the top in a particularly skillful transition. The border's evocative flowering vine meander appears to drift cooly on a bubbling stream of fluctuating sea foam green. Displaying pinpoint detailing and a glistening wool quality, its balanced hues and rhythmical design would provide a luxuriantly artful base for a variety of settings.
