Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB7567 9'1" × 17'9" $70,000

This late 19th century antique Persian Kirman carpet features an intricate all-over design of ochre split leaves, flowers and leafy vinery surrounding two small cusped medallions against a field of slate blue. The main border in rust contains floral sprays and ochre cypresses for a classic Oriental rug look. Rug production began in the Southeast Persian city of Kirman during the Safavid period, peaking in the late 19th and early 20th centuries following an increased demand in America for Kirman Persian rugs.

Antique Kerman 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 antique carpet. Golam Hussein, Sherefat Khan and Arjomand are among the most well-known 20th century Kirman designers.
