13’ 6“’ x 17’ 6” A wonderful 19th century Persian Farahan in an all-over Herati pattern in an oversized or “mansion size” in navy blue, green, blue, pale yellow. This extremely finely hand woven Farahan rug from Western Persia has a “Herati” all-over pattern set in a navy blue color field with designs in brick red, ivory. The colors on the border include blue, green, yellow, pink, red, and cream. It is extremely rare to find such a rug in this size in a Farahan rug from the mid-1800s. Although the rug has a very short pile and is worn in some areas, the beauty of the design and fine colors are clearly visible.
