Antique Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This awe-inspiring antique Persian Kerman rug showcases a tessellating pattern of tiled octofoil medallions with notched contours that cleverly fit together. The kaleidoscopic medallions are filled with lavish botanical motifs that feature a robust combination of earthy hues. This stately combination of ivory, brick red, woody tan and onyx tempers the extraordinarily ornate decorations. The superbly styled field is framed by equally ornate borders featuring partial medallion motifs that create an inventive reciprocating pattern, which has an astounding level of intricacy. This impeccably styled antique Kerman carpet epitomizes the elegant curvilinear style of Safavid Persia.
