Description

An enormous, beautiful and richly coloured antique Fereghan carpet woven in the last 1/4 of the 19th century.  Over 140 years old this exceptional decorative carpet is in wonderful pile, condition is very smart indeed with original ends showing, with minimal losses.  A few tiny areas of lower pile, but in general it is quite remarkable throughout.  Subtle yellow flowers with pale blues, famous Fereghan purple/brown dyes used in the border on a deep blue main background.  If placed in a drawing room or dining room for example it would look quite breathtaking!

We have offered our home visit service since 1990, travelling all over the UK and Europe.  Please request a home visit from us to view this oversize antique Fereghan carpet in-situ.

Since the 18th century, Fereghan carpets have come from the area between Arak and Kashan in Western Persia.  Fereghan carpets have always used varying designs, often a full field decoration of floral motifs based on Persian designs, sometimes with lattice work and most commonly with the geometric ‘Herati’ design.  As well as decorative all over floral patterns, it is not uncommon to see a central medallion, usually with a contrasting colour, the edge of which is surrounded by a zig zag or jagged border. The dyes have mellowed beautifully over the last 100 plus years, we can also see the original 5 borders are showing on this carpet.
