Grand Coat Of Arms Design Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa date: 1900 – This breathtaking small size antique Persian Kerman rug is a masterpiece marked by the intense and powerful beauty of the Coat of Arms design in it’s center. A lush, velvety background of navy blue bears a magnificent portrayal of a royal coat of arms, which is displayed in the center of this small carpet in soft tones of milky beige, pastel green, rustic purple, steely blue and soft yellow.
The encompassing border showcases a detailed pattern of navy blue flowers and vine scroll leaves that are set against a strip of a light coral color background. A simple singular crimson thread separates this border from the darker blue background the main central field.
The coat of arms depiction, which is prominently displayed in the center of this fascinating antique Persian rug, is mysteriously intriguing in its compact and almost claustrophobic composition. On either side of the center element and within the center design of this fascinating antique Persian Kerman rug, we see the barely distinguishable lion figures. They seem amorphous at first but as you look closely, they start revealing themselves and create a fascinating element of secrecy as well as ambiguity. The royal and regal rendering of this antique Oriental rug creates both a sense of simple innocence and clandestine fascination.
The contrast and juxtaposition between this central depiction and the absorbing navy blue backdrop creates an alluring artistic tension. The core illustration is illuminated quite starkly by this contrast, but at the same time, it is confined by the deep, dark dusk of the blue color that encapsulates it on all sides. This somewhat mind bending and ornate masterpiece is a rare antique Persian Kerman rug that is filled with artistic beauty and finesse. It is the type of antique rug that will add an intense and elegant charm to any interior decorated room or setting.
