Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1920 – Here is an impressive antique rug – an antique Kerman rug that was woven by the great rug-makers of Persia during the second decade of the twentieth century. Positively resplendent with classical beauty, this gorgeous antique rug is characterized primarily by an incredible level of detail, and by a genuinely impressive execution. Moving from the outermost border inward, one cannot help but be taken with the apparent craftsmanship that it would have taken to create such fine detail work. Minute floral details, rendered in pale earth tones against blue, and then in blue against pale earth tones, set the stage for the remainder of the piece, as do the overflowing lozenges, replete with geometric vine scroll details. Moving beyond a narrow inner border, one now comes to the immense golden field which practically is overflowing with incredible detail work: vine scrolls flow sinuously throughout, creating complex patterns, punctuated by dazzling floral elements. This repeats throughout the field to a phenomenal effect, with blues and shades of gold dancing together to create a truly magnificent composition. Steeped with classical beauty, this gorgeous antique Oriental rug is a genuine masterwork.
