Antique Silk Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia – This brilliant antique Kerman medallion rug embodies the extreme skill of this famed carpet-producing city and highlights the natural luminescence of the crystalline silk fibers that reflect light beautifully. Flourishing saffron spandrels frame the vivid cerise field and encircle the explosive lobed medallion, which displays a multitude of curvilinear decorations and radiant flowers. The bright color palette and vibrant jewel tones, including saturated midnight blues, periwinkle and persimmon, are accentuated by the luminous properties of the shimmering silk pile. These brilliant decorations have a vibrant personality with bold colors and opulent details that have a fresh, surprisingly contemporary personality. Strapwork guardbands and ruby-red main borders complete the composition while highlighting the lush botanical decorations that epitomize the curvilinear style of Persia’s city carpets, which are prized for their timeless appeal and elegance.
