5.1 x 7.6 Antique Sarouk or Tabriz Rug, Central or Northwest Persia, Circa 1925

This is a puzzling rug. It is larger than more typical “scatter” rugs, which generally do not exceed 5 feet in width and also tend to not exceed 7 feet in length. The design seems based somewhat on earlier Fereghan Sarouk rugs, and it might have been woven in the Sarouk area, but it does not seem as old as Fereghan Sarouk rugs and it is possible it was woven further north in the city of Tabriz. It was more likely woven in the 1920s than the 1890s, and by this period the designs and colors of rugs produced in the Sarouk region in central Persia had changed dramatically: typically featuring detached floral clusters on a burgundy or navy blue field.

The field color is more of a beige or very light camel than a whitish ivory. There is a wide range of ancillary colors.

It is a lot of rug for the price we are asking, regardless of where it was actually woven.
