Object Description

The large scale floral design on this remarkable antique Fereghan carpet is truly sublime.  With a pale sandy tone background, the subtle muted pale blues, rustic reds and greens make for a marvellous palette of colours.  Fereghan carpets are famous for their deep brown/balck dyes and the border colour is a fantastic and striking contrast to the main field.  It would look magnificent in a large drawing room or dining room.

Please request a home visit to view this large antique Fereghan carpet in situ, we love helping customers or interior designers find the perfect carpet for a home.  We travel all over the UK showing our carpets and rugs in customers homes.

Fereghan carpets are generally one of two types, the first being a full field decoration of floral motifs based on Persian designs, most commonly with the geometric ‘Herati’ design.  The second has a full medallion, usually with a contrasting colour, the edge of which is surrounded by a zig zag or jagged border. The dyes have mellowed beautifully due to the carpets age allowing it to be placed in a drawing room or dining room with ease.

Object Condition

An early example from 1870-1880, the condition is very good indeed.  With minimal scattered wear, and a few areas of old restoration.  The structure of the carpet is excellent and it has retained all the main outer border design and sides.  The slight wear does not detract from the beauty of this early carpet, if anything it enhances its charm and character.
