Antique Persian Kirman Carpet BB3999 12'8" × 15'10" $90,000
An early 20th century Persian Kirman rug, the camel field with a garden design of subtle flowering shrubs and trees arranged in a large overall diamond shape within a floral motif border.
Colors can range from ivory, blue and magenta to a more golden and saffron cast. As unique as their designer, no two Persian 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 rugs were woven explicitly for moneyed buyers from the West, there were also local consumers which only added to the diversity of the 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.
