Beautiful Small Scatter Size Antique Persian Sarouk Farahan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Antique Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – Intricate details abound in this beautiful antique Persian Sarouk Farahan rug, drawing attention to the powerful use of contrast and color as elegant points of contact are established throughout this finely woven antique rug. Several vibrant colors come together to define the presence throughout the piece, which results in a volcanic palette that is offset at strategic points by cooler tones and presences. The largest border surrounding the heart of the antique Persian rug features a lovely ocher background that is home to several blossoms and mandalas, arranged in cool stony blues and light, elegant creams. These motifs dance whimsically along the length of the border, ultimately leading the viewer to the heart of the small scatter size rug, where a deep black nightscape awaits. Here, the colors come together in an even more pronounced way, standing out like twinkling stars around a circular arrangement of metals, their pointed ends all coming together towards a single common blossom that unites the rest of the landscape.
