Description

The natural colours in this finely-knotted rug are just beautiful.
Made in the areas of Sarouq and Feraghan in north-west Persia around 1880, the madder-red field contains a beautifully-drawn tree - symbolically 'the tree-of-life' representing the three-level universe where the roots are in the underworld, the trunk is in the earthly world and the branches are in the world of the spirit. Two columns in pale green, rise up on either side of the tree to meet a mihrab with spandrels in stunning natural sky-blue.
In excellent condition although a very minor outer border is missing, this is a stunning and very collectible rug.
Size: 1.93 x 1.30m (6' 4" x 4' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM1695
