Large Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB7219 14'10" × 21'3" $150,000
This circa-1920 antique Persian Karastan rug kirman features a striking, elaborate all-over design of floral abstractions and arabesques in shades of inky blue against a field of abrashed beige. Classic Persian motifs, such as the pomegranate, can be noted throughout the main design. A dark blue main border with curling vines completes the look of the antique early 20th century large area rugs. Antique 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 Persian rugs are typically cotton-foundation with high knot densities, and frequently have intricate all-over floral patterns – as seen in this particular rug. Golam Hussein, Sherefat Khan and Arjomand are among the most well-known 20th century Kirman designers.
