Age: last quarter 19th century 

Size: 4’7” X 6’8”


This last quarter 19th century Fereghan Sarouk measures 4’7” X 6’8”. It has a tree of life motif with two trees that have brown trunks with deer staring at each other at the bottom of the trees. There are 20 pairs of birds in various positions in the two trees. There is another small tree between the larger ones with green leaves and birds. The trees are covered in flowers in blue, pink, ivory, green and tobacco all on an ivory ground. There are four reciprocal borders. The larger ones are vine and leaf design and the two pairs of smaller ones have geometric motif. The major border is done in two shades of blue, ivory, touches of red and pink all on a dark blue ground of meandering vine and flowers. It is a very finely woven handmade wool rug.  One end is missing a row of selvedge, otherwise the rug has complete ends and sides. There are a couple of low spots, none larger than a thumb. There is a sleeve sewn into the back of the rug so it can be hung. Always a nice feature! The rug is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $50.00.
