Fereghan Carpet With Open Field Design

Fereghan Carpet With Open Field Design

Known in Persia as the 'Met Hane' design, the open field design in one abrashed colour is rarely seen in room-size carpets. However, the beautiful shades of terracotta in this piece is a fine example how texture and composition can be created by the use of subtle changes in the same colour, known as abrash. The field is framed by a classic Fereghan border of stylised palmettes and meandering vines. It is more than likely that this carpet was made to order. One wonders what kind of space it was made for, perhaps a dining room, or a snooker room? Maybe just for a grand hallway or lobby. Whatever its original purpose, this is an engaging and beautiful carpet which would work well in many contemporary or traditional decorative settings today. Professionally cleaned, and ready for immediate use.
