Antique Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th century– A delicate rose-mauve mesh of scalloped lines defines a diamond lattice filled by rosettes and flower heads in shades of mauve, blue and soft green against a pale cocoa ground on this marvelously subtle antique Kerman from Central Persia. While the pattern is complex and detailed, the subtlety of the coloration causes it to recede, giving the entire carpet a decorative tone-on-tone effect. The delicate border of vine-scroll tracery of the borders applies the same linear finesse and soft tonality as the field, enhancing the overall unity and decorative effect of the carpet.
