Antique Persian Sarouk Rug, Persia, Early 20th Century – Spectacularly styled, this exquisite antique Sarouk Farahan rug showcases a stunning arabesque. Arching garlands adorned with carefully outlined blossoms and colorful leaflets are juxtaposed beautifully by the warm caramel-colored background. Bronze cypress trees topped with dainty shrubs complement the delicate floral motifs that encircle the airy palmettes and spangles, which decorate the restrained medallion. Deeply contrasting outlines, regal jewel-tone colors and well-defined botanical elements produce a distinguished large-scale pattern that exudes a regal, masculine sophistication. Reciprocating vine scrolls dotted with stately palmettes and warm brick-colored guard bands frame the field while completing the sophisticated western Persian style of this outstanding antique Sarouk Farahan rug.
