Antique Sarouk Farahan rug

Circa 1890
200 × 130 cm 6’6” x 4’3”


A very unusual and finely woven Sarouk Farahan rug from the late 19th century, with an open field of saffron yellow a beautifully drawn ivory medallion sits in the centre.  The style of weaving in the main field is rather unusual as it almost resembles that of a kilim weave, with a subtle almost block style.  Whereas the border resembles that of a traditional Sarouk rug.  With two crowns at either end of the medallion this sublime rug is worthy of a king or queen! A classical and stunning rare rug.

During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries,  Sarouk Farahan or Fereghan rugs and 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 scalloped circular medallion with what appears to be a crown with jewels at either end, sit with the ivory corner spandrels that are uplifting to the rest of this fine rugs palette. The lush, lustrous pile provides the perfect complement to the overwhelmingly delicate coloration of soft saffron yellow, ivory and red tones.
