Oversized Persian Kirman Antique Rug
Oversized Persian Kirman Antique Rug Description:
This circa-1920 antique Persian Kirman carpet consists of an elaborate all-over design of palmettes, arabesques and curling vines in shades of beige, white and yellow against a field of abrashed sea green. A thick main beige border with intermittent dark brown and blue accents contains Oriental floral abstractions and completes the look of the antique early 20th century 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 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.
