Finely Woven Small Mat Size Antique Persian Kerman Floral Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – True to traditional Persian Kerman rugs, this beautiful antique Persian rug elegantly shows off floral motifs and patterns through the use of flowing movements. The lines are very crisp and clean, representing clear paths of motion that carry the viewer’s attention along other sections of the antique Persian Kerman rug. Primarily warm colors are used throughout the rug, but the elegant presence of the eggshell white adds intrigue and mystery to the piece, like a fine white smoke rising above a smoldering fire. A thick primary border surrounds the center of the antique rug, itself surrounded by two thinner and smaller borders. Within the largest border are several dancing floral petals and perennials. At the center of the rug is a beautiful mandala, surrounded by elegantly defined negative space created by the lighter-colored triangles present at the corners of where the borders meet with the rest of the antique Persian Kerman rug’s core.
