Antique Botanic Persian Kirman Handmade Wool Carpet BB7293 12'4" × 17'7" $85,000
An early 20th century Persian Kirman (Kerman) antique rug, the camel field with a bold allover design of palmettes and curvilinear flowering vines in shades of blue and cream within a cream herati 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 for sale are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for Kirman rugs, 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 Kirman Persian 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 rugs.
