Beautiful Large Oversized Antique Kerman Persian Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late Nineteenth Century – Antique Persian Kerman rugs are prized for controlled precision and classic graces of their traditional Persian rug designs, and among them Persian Lavar Kerman rugs are the most exquisite Kermans of all. This exceptional large oversized antique rug, from Kerman, has a grand, finialled cruciform medallion design surrounded by heart-shaped corner pieces. The areas within these elements and the intervening field are all filled with a fine welter of delicate vines and flowers, and with a uniform coloration of tans, blues and cinnamon throughout. The various vine scroll borders are similarly rendered. As a result, the enormous complexity of the design tends to recede into the background, along with form of the main medallion and corner pieces, thereby giving this large oversized antique Persian Kerman rug a far more decorative and modern appeal despite the classical detail. A beautiful carpet, this large oversized antique Persian Kerman rug is a comely and compelling example.
The antique Persian rugs of the late 19th century, that were woven in the city of Kerman, are something spectacular to behold.

This rug uses a formal, central medallion design and has both horizontal and vertical symmetry. The antique Persian Kerman rug has a complex set of borders that are given ample space, in comparison to the central field of the rug. This gives it a sense of balance, but also helps to increase the visual scale of the oversized Kerman carpet.
