Antique Kerman Lavar Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th CenturyAntique Lavar Kermans are highly prized for their ability to recreate the designs of the great classical Kerman masterpieces of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, but rarely do they capture the stunning color of such forerunners as this superb Lavar Kerman does. This Persian antique Kerman Lavar rug features a diamond medallion design filled with a multi-colored profusion of flowers and vines on a dark ground hovers majestically within an open red field occupied otherwise only by a selected array of finials and cartouches with similar floral filling. Cornerpieces echo the central medallion as they transition into a multiplicity of borders, eleven to be exact, which collectively frame the openness of field with a contrasting complexity of fine detail. Here we see the convergence of exquisite design and color characteristic of the greatest antique Persian rugs.
