Vintage Persian Kirman Rug BB7380 11'2" × 17'6" $90,000
An early 20th century Persian Kirman rug, the ice blue field with an allover designs of floral swags and trailing leaves in a condensed light blue and brown border of polychrome floral cartouches between powder blue flowering vine stripes.
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 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 rugs were woven explicitly for moneyed buyers from the West, there were also local consumers which only added to the diversity of the Kirman antique oriental 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.
