Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB4335
Antique Persian Kirman Rug Description:
An early 20th century Persian Kirman (Kerman) antique rug, with an overall design of stepped lozenges in camel, of cream, cocoa and indigo, each containing various floral motifs or animal 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 rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Persian rugs runner 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 rugs for sale.
