Antique Persian Sarouk Farahan Rug, Persia, Late 19th Century – A classic Persian medallion composition unfolds elegantly across the field of this exceptional antique Sarouk-Farahan. The scalloped medallion in rendered in ivory with vine scrolls in soft blue-green. The upper corner pieces reverse the color scheme of the medallion while continuing its ornamental detail, while the lower corner pieces have terracotta vines on an ivory ground. The ‘abrash’ of the field background echoes the color changes of the corner pieces more subtly, with a deep terracotta below and a lighter one above. Blue-green cartouches and black finials sprout from either end of the medallion, surrounded by additional arabesque vine scrolls and palmettes. In contrast to the ultra delicate drawing of the field, the border has a much fleshier vine scroll set dramatically on a black ground, a perfect frame for the central composition
