Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB4644 17'3" × 26'0" $200,000
An exceptional example from our collection of early 20th century Persian Kirman antique rugs, having an allover pattern of stepped cusped lozenges containing floral motifs in various shades of red, blue, and beige within a midnight blue linked cartouche and cloud band 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 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 Persian 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.
