Antique Sarouk, Persia, early twentieth centurySprays of stylized flowers and vines repeat symmetrically down the length of this sumptuous antique Sarouk runner. The design is richly articulated and densely structured, producing a luxurious aura or effect, especially against the rich red ground. The border adapts these elements to a longitudinal format and switching to a brown ground to achieve the requisite contrast with the field. While Sarouks are well known within antique Persian room-size rug production, Sarouk runners like this are exceedingly rare.
