Antique Sarouk carpets are amongst the most luxurious Persian room size weavings. Their style, quality and quiet formality have made them extremely popular in the west, particularly during the 19th century. They were created in a region in western Persia where Ziegler Sultanabad and Mahal carpets are made and are distinguished by their tight weaves and soft velvety excellent quality wool.

An attractive neutral Sarouk carpet dating last 1/4 of 19th century and is an excellent example of the work that made this type of weaving. The subtle salmon field has colour variation (abrash) which adds a great depth and richness to the grand scale drawing and the wonderful array of colour composition including faded blue-grey, greens and light blue framed by a wide settled border.

This antique Sarouk carpet is in a well preserved condition for every day use with minimum sign of age related patina.

A sophisticated example with a discreet elegance that will be a great addition to a variety of settings.
