Persia, circa 1920
Item # C102102 

A strong statement piece, this gorgeous room-size Persian Sarouk carpet features a rich overall magenta and purple ground that is most striking. The angular stylized floral designs throughout are cast over a veritable kaleidoscope of symmetrical forms, shapes and patterns. A thin vine-and-foliage formation works its way through the primary ground of the carpet, dividing it out into two distinct gardens that almost perfectly mirror one another; each culminates in a bold hexagonal motif with a deep cobalt blue central diamond. The carpet is surrounded by one major border, this also grounded in cobalt blue with a complex array of foliage and blossoming flowers connected with thin vines, flanked by two minor borders on either side.

With just over a century of life lived, this fine carpet remains supple and sturdy, capable of being enjoyed for many decades if well cared for.

Measurements: approximately 164" x 113"

Condition Report:
An estate rug and overall very nice presentation. Nice low overall pile with a soft pliable structure. Selvedge cord on one side with a half-circle of loss; binding thread around selvedge cords worn in several areas exposing the loose cords; some rebound selvedge. Extensive ticking and structure visibility, likely from pet claws; this is visible in the close up images. Losses to fringe on both ends and ends somewhat reduced
