Antique Persian Kirman Carpet
Antique Persian Kirman Carpet Description:
This circa-1920 antique Persian Kirman rug features a strikingly detailed all-over design of floral motifs, arabesques, curving leaves and vines, and stylized peacock imagery in shades of beige and brown against a field of abrashed midnight blue. A thick beige main border containing more floral abstractions and garden imagery completes the look of the early 20th century antique carpet. Antique Kirman carpets are sought-after collectors' items for a number of reasons, including their broad range of designs, an elaborate palette, use of natural dyes and fibers, great tensile strength and expert color combinations. The round persian rugs are typically cotton-foundation with high knot densities, and frequently have intricate all-over floral patterns - as seen in this particular carpet. Golam Hussein, Sherefat Khan and Arjomand are among the most well-known 20th century Kirman designers.
