Large Oversized Persian Antique Kerman Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – This large antique rug, an antique Persian rug, features a yellow and white floral pattern spilling over a shimmering, oceanic blue. The pattern is roughly symmetrical about the long axis, with elements repeating to give the antique Persian Kerman rug visual stability and appeal. Cornflower blue accents the yellows and white of the design, balancing coolness and warmth. A wide variety of flowers showcasing numerous shapes are joined by curling stems, from which also sprout lovely accenting leaves with curved or spiked edges.
