The condition is quite amazing, a fine soft wool pile is apparent over the majority of this rug. with minuscule elements of wear. For a rug dating around 150 years old plus, this is exceptional and a highly collectable piece of weaving history.
Fereghan carpets are unlike their neighbours Sarouk which are more formal often using an elaborate central medallion. Fereghan weavers preferred floral motifs of shrubs and vines using more green dyes and hints of yellow. Fereghan or Ferahan rugs were woven in the Arak district which was once the capital of Persia. They wove a variety of designs with Sarouk-Fereghan rugs more classical in their structure and rugs from Malayer and Fereghan using palmettes, shrubs, geometric motifs.
