Early 20th Century Persian Kirman Wool Rug in Blue, Brown, Green, Pink and Red BB7345 10'2" × 11'8" $40,000
Kerman rugs (also known as Kirman rugs) are a perfect choice for all seeking truly high-end Persian carpets. This antique Persian Kirman rug embodies both refined workmanship and sublime artistic taste. It carries an elaborate botanical design featuring cypress trees in a thicket of lush florals. Evergreen cypresses are a variation of the Tree of Life motif – they symbolize eternal life after death. The series of borders encloses the main design with further floral motifs and small medallions. This opulent composition is rendered in a palette of blue, brown, green, pink and red.
As befits an antique rug from Persia, this one was thoroughly hand-knotted of high-quality wool according to traditional techniques which resulted in its durability as well as soft and luminous pile. Despite its old age (made circa 1920), this antique Kirman rug looks as if it just came down from the looms. Under the condition of proper maintenance, it has a chance to serve its owners for generations without the slightest signs of wear, bringing in its irrepressible oriental charm.
