Antique Kerman Tree Of Life Design Persian Rug 41805
This exquisite antique Kerman from Persia is inspired by the fabric and wallpapers designed by William Morris.
Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This exquisite antique Kerman is inspired by the fabric and wallpapers designed by William Morris. It depicts an Oriental garden or paradise theme with the tree of life, but in place of the symmetrical presentation and animal or human inhabitants customary in Persian designs of this type, this one is asymmetrical and almost entirely floral, which, like much of its detail, recalls Neo-medieval design and gold-on-black coloration of Morris’s work. Rendered with impeccable skill and decorative sensibility, this carpet is truly one of a kind.
