Fine Antique Persian Kirman Handmade Wool Carpet (Size Adjusted) BB7166 11'9" × 21'3" $90,000
An early 20th century Persian Kirman rug, the rust field with an enlarged palmette, whimsical leafy vine and cloud band trellis overall within a broad midnight blue 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 rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Kirman antique rugs were woven explicitly for moneyed buyers from the West, there were also local consumers which only added to the diversity of the Antique Persian 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.
