Large Antique Oversize Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Early 20th Century– This large oversize antique Persian rug features a symmetrical design that spreads over the entire breadth, filling a pale red field with intricately stylized floral figures. The highly detailed stitches depict all manner of flowers in white, dark green, and shades of blue. The darkest stitches draw out small details such as minute flowers and perfectly lined stems. Several small bands in cream and light blue edge a darker and wider border, which is replete with a row of complex blossoms interlinked with smaller flower shapes and vines. The dark shade of the border’s background complements and draws out the darker stitches across the main body of this Kerman piece.
