Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Drawn in Kerman’s distinctive floral style, this striking antique Persian medallion rug features a beautiful feminine color scheme with rosy Kerman pinks, inky accents and softly shaded botanical motifs. Recurved acanthus leaves with feathery edges spiral through the borders and encircle the lavish medallion while giving the Persian motifs an alluring Rococo-style flair displayed in the sweeping fronds, asymmetric details and dimensional shading. Delicate pink and pastel chartreuse green borders offset the creamy white field beautifully. These chic Indo-Persian borders are filled with conical cypress trees and pendulous shrubs that give the composition a highly refined style with subtle international influences and progressive aesthetic details introduced in late 19th century designs.
