In late June, a collection of over 100 antique Persian carpets will be available with Fine Rugs of Chevy Chase. Leading the catalog is an antique Persian Farahan Sarouk carpet from the 1890s. Farahan and Sarouk designs come from Western Iran. Detached floral motifs covering the available carpet are distinctly Sarouk. Farahan (or Feraghan) designs are more geometrical with fading green dye. Farahan Sarouk carpets have double weft and a high knot count.
A silk Persian Qum rug measuring 4’4” x 6’11” is also on offer. The carpet comes from the Qom province in Iran. The warps and wefts in these carpets are made from fine silk to highlight certain details in their elaborate designs. Due to their silk material, these delicate Qum carpets are often displayed as wall hangings. Other notable lots include a vintage Chinese silk rug with a dragon design and antique Persian Qashqai rugs. Find the full catalog and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
