Small Scatter Size Vintage Persian Sarouk Rug 48269
Vintage Small Scatter Size Persian Sarouk Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Vintage / About 20 Years Old Rug — This Persian rug is replete with a variety of floral designs. They most noticeable in the center of the Persian Sarouk rug, where they are arranged almost into little blooming islands. The borders mirror the central design both in its floral subject matter and in its color scheme, echoing several portions of the Oriental rug. The design as a whole is brightly colored and dramatic. This vintage rug is particularly unique because its background is more vibrant than its details–the field composing the center is a stunning scarlet color, while the flowers in the foreground, though colorful in their own right, seem almost muted by comparison.
Just as important as what is woven into the details of the vintage Persian Sarouk rug is what isn’t. The design makes good use of negative space, creating complex geometric designs out of all the gaps between each of the islands of flowers. For this reason, the design seems to radiate outwards from the central medallion design. This small scatter size rug almost gives a sense that it is splintering from the center outwards–a tension that is enhanced by the scarlet background and offset by the peaceful nature of the floral motif. The bright coloring and design give this vintage Persian Sarouk rug a dramatic edge that is not often seen in rugs of its kind.
