Beautiful Large Size Antique and Finely Woven Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – A large medallion fills the middle of this antique Persian rug, crafted with equal parts creamy white and dark blue in an intricately elaborate motif. Pale from the effects of time, an antique sheen yet reveals precise stitches that pick out complex floral elements interlinked with quadrilateral symmetry. A tan background surrounds the medallion, brimming with stylized blossoms in white, blue and shades of brown. Every flower, large or small, links to the greater whole with thin, dark stems. Feathery fronds and large blooms in an intricate, meditative array fill every corner of the antique rug’s central field, which is surrounded by a set of borders. Ornate floral decorations through the widest band of this antique Persian Kerman rug seem to spill over into the smaller bars, trailing vines and smaller flowers.
