Antique Persian Kirman Rug BB7382 13'1" × 19'3" $72,000

A Kirman (Kerman) rug from Persia, the ivory field with a dense allover design of cusped medallions within a cream border with scrolling vines and bouquets.

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’ carpets, a term deriving from the depiction of vase motifs in many examples woven there. By the nineteenth century, Kirman was recognized for exceptional antique oriental rugs in the best Persian tradition. Antique Persian carpets 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.
