Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB4419 12'5" × 20'6" $60,000

A classic early 20th century Kerman Persian rugs, the elaborate enlarged cream medallion with a moss green centerpiece with an unusual polychrome palmette ring on a light blue field with scattered millefleur within a dark blue leafy border.

During the sixteenth century, Shah Abbas I reportedly gave antique Kirman rugs embroidered with gold and silver thread as tribute to the Ottoman Court. The fame of these oriental weavings rapidly spread across Western Europe. From the mid sixteenth century through the eighteenth century, the city of Kirman was celebrated for ‘vase’ Persian rugs, a term deriving from the depiction of vase motifs in many examples woven there.

By the nineteenth century, Kirman was recognized for exceptional oriental rugs in the best Persian tradition. Antique rugs of this period, especially the Lavar group woven in the town of Ravar, are known for their fine weave, delicate drawing, incomparable range of color, and are still much in demand today.
