Antique Farahan, Persia, circa 1900With lace-like precision, a delicate ‘Herati’ design unfolds across the field of this exquisite antique Persian Farahan. The design is closely worked, that the dark ground barely peeks through, operating as little more than an accenting outline for the pale gold details of the pattern. A palmette vinescroll border frames the field with a more curvilinear pattern, but one that still maintains a similar design texture and coloration. Farahans like this are the epitome of grace and finesse.
