Item: D0148     Sarouk No.2

Description:  40″ by 58.5″ 1920’s Sarouk, 169 KPSI, Very Good Condition

This is an American ‘painted’ Sarouk runner  made in the Arak region in Northwest Central Iran. These rugs were very popular and in high demand  by the American and European markets in the 1920’s -1930’s.These rugs were discontinued after World War II sometime in the early 1950’s.   Americans preferred the darker reds  and rugs exported to the USA  were darkened or painted with a deeper red dye.   Sarouks are known for their extremely resilient, shiny, springy wool, fine weave, and jewel colors,  This rug has a painted  cochineal red field with ocher, pink, rose, peach and green floral sprays and jewel like flowers bouquets. These lighter colors are more unusual for Sarouks.   It is finely knotted with a high knot count of 169 KPSI (knots per square inch).  It still has the original selvage sides and original fringes.  It has good, full, shiny pile throughout the entire rug. .

This is a wonderful one of a kind piece that can be used on the floor for many decades to come.
