Fine Antique Persian Kirman Brown, Blue Handmade Wool Carpet BB7242 12'9" × 21'8" $120,000
An early 20th century antique Persian Kirman (Kerman) rug, the peach field with dense interlaced strap work, cloudband and palmette trellis overall within a palmette and floral vinery border.
Colors can range from ivory, blue and magenta to a more golden and saffron cast. As unique as their designer, no two Kerman antique rugs 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 Persian carpets were woven explicitly for moneyed buyers from the West, there were also local consumers which only added to the diversity of the Kirman 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.
