Antique Persian Sarouk Rug
Antique Persian Sarouk Rug Description:
This turn of the century antique Persian Sarouk rug features an ornate center design of a rust red stylized vase against a field of light beige, creating space for dark blue corner brackets patterned with botanical imagery. The central space includes palmettes, arabesques, vinery and flowerheads in primarly blue and red hues. A main border of serrated leaves and floral motifs completes the look of the antique carpet. Sarouk is a small Iranian village near the city of Arak (formerly Sultanabad), where carpet production was thriving in the late 19th century due to European and American demand. The rugs tended to be finely-woven and employed medallion designs. Sarouk rugs continue to be produced today, made with a high quality, tough wool using a Persian knot. A characteristic of a Sarouk carpet is usually its blue weft threads, salmon or tomato-red color mixed with ivory and blues, and a very traditional, floral style.
