Soft Wash Out Decorative Fine Antique Persian Kerman Rug 46691
Dense floral arabesques and soft hues of camel brown and Persian blue are combined in this magnificent antique room-sized Persian rug from the famed city of Kerman.
Kerman Persian Rug, Persia, Early 20th Century – This awe-inspiring antique Kerman rug features a superlative allover arabesque that illustrates the potent elegance of Safavid designs. Grand Shah Abbasi palmettes, dramatic cloud bands and beautifully drawn vine scrolls create a sprawling large-scale arabesque that matches the scale of the palatial composition. Monumental primary, secondary and tertiary borders and guard bands form a warm golden-yellow frame that’s filled with reciprocating floral patterns and lush millefleur shrubs with minuscule outlines that capture the style and detail of Kerman rugs while representing the impeccable form of Persia’s geometrically perfect designs. This extraordinary convergence produces a timeless, powerfully elegant result that is enhanced by the low-contrast palette of softly oxidized hues.
