Antique Mehajeran Sarouk, Persia, early twentieth centuryA complex array of delicate floral motifs unfolds in allover symmetry across the velvety field of this lush antique Mehajeran Sarouk. Sprays of lower, leafy vines, and elegant classical Persian palmettes are rendered with consummate precision in shades of blue and ivory against the shimmering terracotta ground. The border too burgeons with flowering plants reminiscent of Moghul rugs and textiles, but set against a deep blue ground to provide the requisite framing contrast for the field, with terracotta minor borders to smooth the transition. The thick lustrous pile underscores the aura of classic Persian luxury.
