Long and Narrow Antique Gallery Size Persian Farahan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Antique Persia Rug, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – While antique Farahan rugs are famed for their classical Persian medallion designs, this elegantly unusual antique rug has a fine design of staggered boteh or paisley motifs inspired by fine embroidered textiles. The various botehs are closely arranged so that the dark ground in is little more than an accenting outline for them. The staggering of the various botehs also creates a subtle diagonal lattice effect. An ivory ground vine scroll main border supplies the contrasting frame, with terracotta minor borders making a transition to the design texture and coloration of the field.
