Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1880 – The epitome of elegance and Persian refinement, this gorgeous antique Kerman rug displays a chic unidirectional allover pattern framed by heavily outlined guard-bands and exquisite main borders that feature compound foliate motifs embraced by architectural vines. Within the lush, softly oxidized field, sweeping ogival lines form a complex latticework pattern with scrolling elephant ear motifs, arching hills and sharply pointed valleys populated by towering cypress trees and a lush background of scrolling branches. These ornate fixtures gracefully lead the eye toward branching shrubs, delicate floral sprays and elegant coronets created by arching saz leaves. This beautifully styled all over repeating pattern displays soft neutral colors punctuated by dark bistre accents that offset the softly oxidized field. Geometric lines, ogival curves and botanical space fillers embody the mathematical precision and golden proportions associated with great Persian designs.
