9'10" x 13'8" Amazing Antique Persian Sarouk Feraghan Carpet, c-1880's in good condition.
Feraghans were made between the 1870s and 1913 from a region north of the town of Arak, produced for the Persian aristocracy. They are single wefted, long and narrow or room-sized carpets, typically with an all-over Herati design or floral and curling leaf motifs. Feraghan-Sarouks, also called Sarouks, are double-wefted, heavier carpets with a higher knot count than village Sultanabads. Fields are often blue or ivory and designs typically feature either large medallions or representations of trees and birds.
The detail of the feathers and the richness of the red and blue design makes the central medallion really eye-catching in this example. Looking closely, one can see beautiful vases of flowers as well as trailing floral vines. The vibrant red field makes these flowers really pop. The more subtle shading in the corners have very interesting flowers within flowers in their detail and really help draw your eyes to the central medallion.
