Antique Persian Kirman Carpet BB7463 6'7" × 12'10" $20,000
An early 20th century Persian Kerman carpet, the dark brown field with neat rows with alternating floral bouquets, vases and birds within a narrow ivory cartouche 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 round 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 antique area 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 rugs.
