Beautiful Small Size and Ivory Background Colored Vintage Persian Sarouk Farahan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Vintage Persian Rug, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century – This Persian Sarouk Farahan rug is an intricate vintage Persian rug that is packed with impressive intricate design detail. The beautiful ivory white background of the Persian rug can be seen peeking from behind the rich jewel tone colored patterns. Just enough of the crisp white background is present to provide the perfect light background color, against which, the more elaborate intricate patterns can really stand out.
The majority of the small rug is focused on a vase pattern. The vase it self is featured in a deep blue color with lighter blue accents. Adorning each one of the vases, are three large flowers, perhaps roses.
Surrounding the vases are complex amalgam of both birds and floral design motifs. This complex pattern is repeated sixty five times throughout this impressive Persian Sarouk Farahan rug. Because each vase is largely symmetrical, each repetition of the vase pattern blends perfectly into the next iteration. From a distance, the base patterns look like abstract rug symbols.
The main field of this impressive Persian Sarouk Farahan rug is framed by a fascinatingly artistic red colored border. Withing the red border itself, there are more geometric and primitive patterns. Geometric vine scrolls with primitive floral and paisley motifs add a tribal feel to this otherwise very classic piece.
The main red colored border is flank on either side by beautiful thin light blue guard borders. These two thinner guard borders are identical and feature blue with red geometric shapes.
On the one hand, this Persian Sarouk Farahan rug is a magnificently fine, classic and traditional Persian rug. On the other hand, it has so much tribal and primitive appeal and features. This dichotomy of sorts elevates this piece into a class of its over. It also ads so much versatility that make it far easier to place in almost any interior design approach.
