Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: First Decade of the 20th Century – Here is an alluring antique Oriental rug – an antique Kerman carpet, woven in Persia during the first years of the twentieth century. Featuring an appealing allover design, this beautiful Persian carpet is a wonderful example of the style. Sinuous, undulating vine scroll elements appear throughout this carpet, both within the borders and within the field. The gentle, sloping curves of these vine scrolls combine to give the entire carpet an air of elegance and sophistication – qualities that are enhanced by the low contrast pallet of golds and browns that are found throughout the piece. The subtle contrast and impeccable patina combine to give the entire carpet an understated quality deeply enhances its bona fides as a classical carpet. Impressively framed by complex borders, the field of this Kerman boasts a similarly elaborate composition, the softness of which gives it a unique and ineffable quality.
