Antique Persian Kirman Carpet BB6719 11'8" × 20'3" $160,000
A late 19th century Southeast Persian Kirman rug, the camel field with an allover pattern of voluptuous swirling vines, palmettes and floral sprays within a pale rust floral motif 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 antique rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Kirman Persian 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.
