This stunning circa-1920 antique Persian Kirman carpet features an ornate all-over design that captures the eye with its complexity and use of traditional Oriental rug weaving motifs.

Antique Persian rugs are sought-after collectors’ items for a number of reasons, including their broad range of designs, an elaborate palette, use of natural dyes and fibers, great tensile strength and expert color combinations. The rugs are typically cotton-foundation with high knot densities, and frequently have intricate all-over floral patterns – as seen in this particular antique carpet. Golam Hussein, Sherefat Khan and Arjomand are among the most well-known 20th century Kirman designers.
