Description

Stunning all over floral palmette and vine design Sarouk-Fereghan or Farahan carpet from the late 19th century.  Remarkable colours with natural dyes from 1880-1890, a very good pile height on this exceptional carpet. Sarouk-Fereghans always have unbelievable colours and are often very fine in their construction like this highly decorative antique carpet.

During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries,  Sarouk Fereghan carpets like this constituted some of the most impressive examples of the great revival of classical Persian rug weaving, far more so than the Sarouk carpets of subsequent generations.

. . .

Here a grand all over design with profuse floral detail floats within a rich ornamental array of sprawling vines and shrubberies, all set against a lovely rose-wine colored field with a deep indigo border as an extra accent. Complex floral cartouches make up the main border with flanking minor borders for extra framing emphasis. The lush, lustrous pile provides the perfect complement to the overwhelmingly delicate coloration of soft green, saffron, and ivory tones.
