Large Palace Size Size Antique Persian Kerman Carpet, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 — This very large, palace size, Kerman rug is exquisitely layered with a multitude of borders, each more beautiful than the previous. Vine scrolls interact with charming images of blossoms and leaves, conveyed through arabesques patterns that feature palmettes and lotuses, all of which flow against one another, each border playing into the next. Vase-like tree motifs make up the body of the piece, the flowering branches spiraling off of one another in playful perfection. Gentle colors add character and depth to the piece, with creams and scarlets accented by the rich use of lapis and buttermilk. The antique rug’s quiet beauty is further accentuated by the use of delightful jewel tones.
