Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB4273 12'10" × 16'0" $55,000
A late 19th century Persian Kerman rug, the maize field with an allover curvilinear design of floral motifs, vines and scrolling strap work forming medallions and fleur-de-lys cartouches within a maize 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 Kerman rugs are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for 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 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 antique kilim rugs.
