Antique Kirman Rug in Black, Red and Yellow BB5594 12'7" × 18'1" $82,000
An early 20th century Persian Kirman (Kerman) antique carpet, the black field with a dense herati pattern in red, golden yellow and light blue within a red herati 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 Kirman rug 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.
