Antique Persian Kirman Handwoven Wool Rug BB7137 12'0" × 26'10" $135,000
An early 20th century Persian Kerman rug, the cream field with an allover panel design of stepped compartments containing lush blossoming trees issuing from decorative vases within a cream 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 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 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.
