SOLD – 9’x11’4″ 1930’s Antique Persian Sarouk


Like a fine wine, a well-kept rug ages in colors and in character, and this piece is no exception. One of the most striking and undeniably unique features of this rug is its powerful, yet tasteful abrash (natural striations of color variation). Through the border, this abrash creates a rippling contrast between a navy blue and a rich midnight blue. Just as well, the central design of the rug is layered over a plum-red and beige abrash, creating an incredible organic level of variation. The artists who wove this antique Sarouk understood well the space they had to work with, and created a field pattern that exudes movement and naturalistic motifs. This naturalism is represented wonderfully through contrasts between antique beige highlights and sapphire blues, symbolizing dualism between the earth and the sky.
