Antique Kerman Persian Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Indicated by the jewels, plumed turban ornament, and the profusion of symbolic swans, the courtier depicted in this portrait was a member of royal society. This luxurious antique carpet is an extremely impressive example of weaving from Kerman and the city’s classic coral pinks. The typically western cameo is also quite unusual for any portrait produced by Islamic artists, who generally preferred broader formats.
