SOLD — Large Persian Medallion Sarouk Rug — 13 ft. by 9 ft. 6 in. — $699

 

Large traditional floral Persian Sarouk carpet from central Iran. Natural wool woven onto natural cotton. Very tightly knotted weave so the rug is heavy and dense, and it can be used in a high foot traffic area, including under a dining room table.

Condition is good with some minor wear across the pile. Fringes and side cords are in excellent condition. There are a couple of small nicks in the wool pile about the size of a nickel. I am providing closeup photos (with coin) to indicate size. The structure is intact so there are no holes or weak spots; these are strictly cosmetic flaws, which could be re-piled. As they are hardly noticeable without nose on the rug, they don’t warrant concern.

The dyes are of a high quality and not overbearing. Fairly muted red with balanced blues, ivory, tans, and green rounding out the color palette.

Mahal, Mashad, Kashan, Tabriz, Isfahan, Kashmar are all cities in Iran that all produce a version of this intricate medallion rug. This one is a Sarouk from the late 1940s – 1950s. This rug is guaranteed to be Persian, it is not a copy from Pakistan, India or China, etc.

Persian handmade traditional carpet from Sabzevar, Iran. Sabzevar is in the Khorasan (also Khurasan) region of Persia, located in the northeast. The name means ‘rising sun’. The carpets are similar to those from Mashad, which is about 220 kilometers to the east.

The condition is good with some pile wear on a few areas around the center (the most noteworthy area is shown in photo 3, in some of the red). The wear is minor and merely cosmetic, and there are no holes or weak spots. Rug remains very rugged and ready to use, including in a high foot traffic area of the living room or under the dining room table.

This rug is out of a European estate, and has been professionally washed. The fringe and the entire rug has really brightened up with the wash, and the rug needs absolutely nothing to roll out on the floor. With only minor wear this lovely floral Sabzevar had many decades of life left in it.

Sabzevar weavers like to work in plush reds and purples, and this rug is very representative of their finest art.

This is the kind of motif — a large medallion, elegant corner vases, an arabesque of swirling and twisting plumes and flowers — that most people have in mind when they think of a Persian carpet. Signed by the master weaver on one end, shown in penultimate photo. Last photo, with coin, is the back of the rug. 1950s.

Exact size is 11 ft. 5 in by 8 ft. 3 in. The price of the rug is $829.
