Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Persia, Late 19th Century – A stunning example of Persian culture and art manifest as a rug, this Kerman exhibits artistry that is both complex and elemental. Its palette ranges from vivid reds to the dark of midnight, and the subjects captured in its weave are remarkable in variety and number. The secondary borders of scarlet rosettes and undulating vines stand out on deep blue. Within these darker frames, the warm buff primary border displays stylized floral emblems in recurring shades of red and blue accented with earthy rust and gold. The central field expands on the border hues and shows them to optimum advantage against an ivory backdrop. The dazzling interior design features a cruciform arrangement of vases plumed with arching fronds and densely placed blossoms on curvilinear vines. A dual palmette medallion dominates the junction of the quadrants, and this focal point is offset above by a dramatic palmette spray supporting the entire arrangement. This woven artwork is a tour de force of form and color.
