Antique Farahan Rug, Persia, Circa 1900 — This rich, intricate design is a pristine example of the art and culture of turn of the century Persia. A detailed abstracted botanical design is woven with various warm toned wool threads. A thick border surrounds the design and features a cooling touch of mint green. The craftsmanship on this piece is impeccable; exiguous design work is wonderfully calculated to produce a beautifully repetitious pattern. This area rug is reminiscent of the ancient elite and features a rich touch of history. The rich red threads contrast nicely with a deep black background and allow this piece to stand out and make a solid statement.
