Origin : Central PersiaSize: 68 X 56 cm (Approximately 26.7 X 22 inch)Age: Mid 20th CenturyKnots, 5 x 5 = 25 knot per sq cmCondition: ExcellentDescription of Design and History:Persian Antique Sarouk Farahan Rugs €œ Antique Persian Farahan Sarouk rugs and carpets that were woven in/ around the region called Arak in west central Iran, are remarkable for their ability to combine different qualities and sensibilities. The medallion design customary on so-called Sarouk-Farahans is classically Persian, as is all the minor detail. But the drawing is an interesting combination of suave curve-linearity and geometric styles.Farahan Sarouk rugs often come close to the angular drawing of Herizes and Serapis, but a much finer scale appropriate to designs of classical derivation. This delicacy of design relates closely to the weaving technique of Farahans, which is relatively tight and fine. The coloration of Sarouk Farahan rugs and carpets tend to be rich yet soft, with emphasis on terracotta reds, delicate blues and greens, and pastel apricots and yellows.All natural dyes are paramount for the carpet to have more than just decorative value. Beyond that, various dyers had varying levels of skill and invested different lengths of time in dyeing the yarns. The Å“quality of color €œits radiance and level of nuance within each color €œis centrally important. Certain rare colors such as Tyrian purple, saffron yellow, cochineal rose and greens add to the carpet „¢s value
