Oversized Vintage Persian Kirman Carpet
Oversized Vintage Persian Kirman Carpet Description:
An early 20th century Persian Kerman rug, with an overall design of stepped lozenges in shades of beige and blue, each containing various floral motifs within a beige architectural border with scrolling vines and floral motifs.
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 kilim rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced.
While some Antique 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 large area rugs sizes. 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 in NYC.
