MAHAJIRAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
3' 6" x 4' 10" Circa 1920 Price: $5,500
This delightful over century-old Persian Mahajiran Sarouk is covered with exquisitely drawn bouquets radiating floral arrangements. More seldom found in this palette and exquisitely composed with a great spaciousness of pattern, this town rug has a deeply saturated midnight-sapphire field, with subtle, intentional rippling color shifts that create a sense of visual depth and dramatic effect. The gently irregular spacing and variations between the botanical elements add greatly to the charm of this elegant mat-sized piece. Shimmering hues of golden wheat and molten red tones are in harmony with sage green, slate, mocha, and periwinkle. To redouble its appeal, this century-old rug has heavy pile with an exceedingly lustrous, lanolin-rich wool that intensifies the luminosity of this piece and imbues it with a warm overall glow.
