Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB0096 12'9" × 19'0" $65,000
An early 20th century Karastan Kirman rug from Persia on a soft beige field with scrolling vines and large colorful palmettes in blue and red framed by a similar border with an architectural red 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 rugs are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for Kirman antique rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Kirman Persian rugs 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.
