This is 1920’s – 30’s Painted Mohajeran Sarouk with a beautiful, elegant restrained floral design, balanced in each corner, with glowing jewel colors throughout. This piece has overall wear which does not detract from its appeal and overall appearance.
These rugs were made in Northwest Central Iran, in the Arak region where all Sarouks and Mohajerans were woven. Mohajerans were more finely woven than the Sarouks of the 1920’s -1930’s. These rugs were in great demand by the German and American markets in early 1900’s. For the American market, the rug’s colors were enhanced after weaving by over dyeing with a darker red over the rosey red and a darker blue also over the blues. For this reason they were called Painted. These rugs graced the homes of the wealthy and were in high demand in affluent homes. Production of Mohajerans stopped sometime in the 1930’s.
