A Spectacular Floral Design Antique Persian Kerman Long Runner Rug 70165, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920 – The spectacular jewel tone colors of this impressive 22 foot long Kerman antique runner rug add a touch of decadence to a long hallway or large space. This antique Persian rug was woven around 1920 and would go well with an Art Deco or traditional historical design. The antique rug features a repeating design along its length with a formal border, but it is the color of this rug that makes it stand out the most.
When you first begin to examine this beautiful and fine antique Persian Kerman rug, you will find that it does not contain a significant detail within the design motifs themselves. Most of the designs are carried out using a single color within a contrasting colored border. One can still find instances of shading in the leaves and flowers, but this is not carried out in a way that detracts from the simplicity of the design. The use of simple shapes to create the floral design allow the artist to draw attention to the spectacular use of color.
When you begin to examine the many different colors that are used in the antique Persian Kerman runner rug, they are difficult to count. The rug uses many different shades and tones of similar color palettes. The olive background creates a neutral backdrop for the brilliant jewel tones that are placed against it. This makes the colors stand out even more. The shapes within the Oriental rug are outlined with contrasting colors, which further highlights them.
This antique Kerman runner has a traditional, historical feel that would go well in a Victorian home or grand estate. However, the simple design and brilliant use of color would also make this fine Persian runner an excellent addition to a modern theme. Regardless of the interior design in which it is used, it is a breathtaking showpiece.
