SOLD - This genuine, antique, hand-knotted Persian Sarouk carpet will breathe life into any indoor space with its warmth, elegance and gorgeous colors.

The somewhat whimsical, floral design is rendered in stunning and nearly irridescent shades of red and blue, along with multiple shades of beige.

Weavers in the town of Arak, Iran, diligently hand-knotted the rug c. 1935-1945. The light shade of blue corresponds to a particular dye used during those years.

The North American import firms color treated this rug, like most of the Sarouks imported during that time period, to modify the original shade of pink. Thus, this type of rug is known as an 'American Sarouk' or 'Painted Sarouk'.

The rug is in fair-to-good antique condition. The colors and design show beautifully! The wool pile shows a bit of wear, consistent with its age. A small stain appears near one end, as shown in the final photo, but the stain blends in easily and can be covered by even the smallest furniture leg. 

I hand washed the rug in September, 2023, and carefully stored it ever since.

-Size: 63x117 inches
-Thickness: 1/3 inch
-Materials: wool pile on cotton foundation
-Age: c. 1935-1945
