Antique Persian Kirman Floral Beige Handmade Wool Rug BB0772 11'9" × 18'5" $85,000
An early 20th century antique Kirman (Kerman) rug from Persia, the black field with a very dense scrolling arabesque, boteh, vase and flower head trellis overall, within a similar stylized 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 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.
