Antique Persian Sarouk Rug, Persia, Early 20th Century – This fascinating and unique antique rug – a Sarouk rug made in Persia some time during the early years of the twentieth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This distinctive piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. Due to the special warping techniques and advanced skills needed, carpets with irregular shapes have traditionally been more expensive to produce and consequently much rarer. In addition to the complex central medallion filled with a multitude of precise floral details, the inscribed border accentuates this Persian rug’s gentle, articulated curves and completes the spectacular design. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its fantastic design and impeccable composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
