Antique Oversized Lattice Garden Design Persian Kerman Rug 48268
Large and Finely Woven Antique Oversized Lattice Design Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This antique Persian rug features a latticework pattern spilling across its oversized body, rendered in creamy, warm shades and accented by navy. The dark blue shade picks out alternating, tilted squares within the design, and slightly curving leafy boughs created with the same hue form the framework with artful regularity. Spaced evenly between the darker squares, lighter backgrounds offset the honey-cream shades of the big antique Persian Kerman rug. Intricately detailed floral decorations fill each space within the lattice, touched with orange, yellow and teal. A series of elaborately worked borders encloses the central area, each backed with a light tone and stitched with darker colors that pick out lovely flowers in yellow and blue. The widest band, in the midst of several slimmer borders, showcases sumptuous and stylized blossoms interlinked by a dark, arching vine that sprouts small leaves along its narrow length.
Each of the sections contains four evenly spaced floral patterns, but the selection and arrangement of them makes each one unique. Some have the same type of flower throughout, while others have four unique designs. This allowed the artist who created this breathtaking antique rug to add interest yet retain the formal structure of the design. Even though this antique Oversized Persian Kerman rug depicts the randomness and abstract qualities of the natural world, it still retains a sense of formality through form.
This finely woven antique Persian Kerman carpet uses fine detail that is carried throughout the field and borders. When viewed from a distance, this Kerman rug is reminiscent of the tile work that is found on the floors, walls, and ceilings of Persian Palaces. This connection demonstrates its importance as a piece of classic Persian artwork that would make an excellent addition to any collection.
