An enormous and glorious antique Fereghan carpet woven in the last 1/4 of the 19th century.  The wool pile is very good with only minimal low areas.  The colours are sublime as is the border and open field.

A stunning large decorative antique persian carpet which would look magnificent in a drawing room or dining room.  The variety of soft colours would be a joy to decorate with, as the carpet was woven in the golden era of weaving the muted dyes are exquisite.

Fereghan carpets are generally one of two types, the first being a full field decoration of floral motifs based on Persian designs, most commonly with the geometric ‘Herati’ design.  

The second has a full medallion, usually with a contrasting colour, the edge of which is surrounded by a zig zag or jagged border. The dyes have mellowed beautifully due to the carpets age allowing it to be placed in a drawing room or dining room with ease.

Request an appointment to view this large antique carpet in your own home or in our Surrey barn showroom.
