Oversized Antique Persian Kirman Carpet BB6772 16'7" × 25'8" $160,000
An exceptional finely-woven late 19th century antique Persian Kirman carpet, with an intricate allover design of floral motifs in shades of beige and light brown within a brown curving leaf and palmette border.
Colors can range from ivory, blue and magenta to a more golden and saffron cast. As unique as their designer, no two Kerman Persian carpets are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for Kirman large colorful area rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Kirman rugs were woven explicitly for moneyed buyers from the West, there were also local consumers which only added to the diversity of the Kirman antique oriental rugs. This diversity is seen in the range of motifs which can range from well-known and original Persian motifs to western motifs; striped and repetitive motifs, vase, Toranj (Citron), symmetric, garden, animal shapes, and pictorial rugs.
