During the sixteenth century, Shah Abbas I reportedly gave antique Kirman rugs embroidered with gold and silver thread as a tribute to the Ottoman Court. The fame of these oriental weavings rapidly spread across Western Europe. From the mid-sixteenth century through the eighteenth century, the city of Kirman was celebrated for ‘vase’ carpets in NYC, a term deriving from the depiction of vase motifs in many examples woven there. By the nineteenth century, Kirman was recognized for exceptional Persian carpets in the best Persian tradition.
