Authentic 19th Century Persian Kirman Handmade Wool Rug BB4128 12'4" × 18'7" $120,000
A late 19th century Persian Kerman carpet, the celadon field with a dense allover trellis design of scrolling vines ending in split leaves and floral motifs within a camel palmette and leafy vine border.
Since the thirteenth century, when Marco Polo admired their skill while traveling through South-Central Persia, the Persian carpet weavers of Kirman have been highly respected. Blessed with an ample supply of very high quality local wool, known as Carmania wool, the craftsmen of Kirman have been weaving their way to the top of the antique carpet world by virtue of their craftsmanship, wide range of designs, broad palette of available colors, immense tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and expert color combinations. 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.
