An early 20th century Persian Kirman antique rug, the caramel field with a delicate flowering vinery and palmette trellis overall within an indigo blue palmette and enlarged feathery leaf border.

During the sixteenth century, Shah Abbas I reportedly gave antique Kirman rugs embroidered with gold and silver thread as 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, a term deriving from the depiction of vase motifs in many examples woven there. By the nineteenth century, Kirman was recognized for exceptional Persian rugs in the best Persian tradition.
