Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB7270 11'9" × 16'0" $80,000

A late 19th century antique Persian Kirman (Kerman) rug, with an allover design of alternating cocoa and cream stepped lozenges, separated by a thick ivory floral trim, each lozenge containing floral motifs within a narrow ivory palmette and floral motif border.

Colors can range from ivory, blue and magenta to a more golden and saffron cast. As unique as their designer, no two Kerman rugs are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for Kirman Persian carpets, 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 antique kilim 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 beautiful rugs.
