Large and Decorative Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – The lovely golden tone of vintage papyrus washes down the body of this antique Persian rug. A delicate Kerman pattern like fine lace fills the central field. Black, white and yellow tones create an elaborate, repeating design of curls and arabesques, all filled with tiny, detailed flowers studded with minute leaves. Several borders edge the rectangular area, each delineated with precise, dark stitches. The designs of the inner and outer borders match, presenting diminutive daisies with perfect regularity. The middle band is widest, and its pattern mimics the palest tones of the middle of the antique rug, echoing the graceful floral lacework.
