Antique American Sarough ~1890
This antique Sarough Persian rug dates to about 1890 and is one of the few American Sarough rugs we have in our collection...
The American Sarough rugs are actual Sarough Persian rugs made in Iran with the American market in mind and were pioneered by companies like the Ziegler&Co. Starting in the later half of the 19th century, there was a huge demand for fine Persian rugs in Europe and the US, which led several companies to set up offices throughout the carpet weaving regions of Persia and the rest of the carpet weaving parts of central and eastern Asia. This Sarough is an early example of what the Sarough rugs known as American Saroughs are all about.
This Sarough is a great example of what the antique designs and colors were all about and best of all, it is in excellent condition. The small size also ensures that the price is nowhere near the astronomical levels that the larger pieces reach and it is a perfect decor rug. Made with the strength and durability of the Turkish knots, the old Sarough rugs are known for not only lasting many decades, but also maintaining their quality and looks. The pile is made of fine wool and all vegetable dyes while the design is typical for the weavers of central Iran.
