A stunningly beautiful rare yellow ground antique Fereghan carpet woven in the last 1/4 of the 19th century. The design of connecting flowers with vines is quite exceptional using a variety of early dyes, delicate pale blues and greens and muted red tones. The yellow background is a rare and exquisite colour to scheme around or with. This oversize antique carpet is narrow too for its length of 20 feet. The wool pile is very good with only minimal low areas in places. A stunning large decorative antique Persian carpet which would look magnificent in a drawing room or dining room. The variety of soft colours would be a joy to decorate with, as the carpet was woven in the golden era of weaving in Persia around 1880-1890.

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.
