Antique Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 – A stunning pattern of palmettes as well as vines which were derived from classical Persian Kerman ‘vase carpets’ unfolds elegantly across the rich red ground of this sumptuous antique Persian rug. A sinuous vine scroll border, also of classical Kerman derivation, is set dramatically against deep blue-black ground, providing a luxuriant contrast to the field. While many Kerman carpets of this period emulate such classical forerunners, this example is unusual in preserving the original palette of deep reds, blues, and golds.
