Sarouk-Farahan Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 – Softly colored and richly detailed, this antique Persian Sarouk-Farahan rug represents the stylistic duality of regional designs. Intricate tone-on-tone tiles cover the luxurious camel-tone field and give the tonal background a textural snakeskin appearance. The palatial field is defined by a lavish inset lozenge frame that surrounds the central stepped-lozenge medallion. Opulent botanical repeating patterns featuring beautifully colored vases decorate the central lozenge and appear again in the angular spandrels, which mirror the patterned medallion and gradient stepped outlines that define key figures within the field. Notched mountains line the edges of the inset design while reflecting the angular contours of the central lozenge and slanting spandrels. The fluid, curve linear designs of Sarouk are brought to light in the sylvan main borders and complementary guard bands, which contain an interwoven forest of scrolling vines.
