Fine Antique Persian Kirman Midnight Blue Handmade Wool Rug BB7565 11'0" × 19'0" $110,000
An early 20th century midnight blue Persian rug with a palmette and leafy vinery trellis overall in rust and sage within a broad rust palmette 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 are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for Kirman Persian 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 antique area 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 carpets.
