U-1492 - Vintage Persian Kerman Rug

Kerman - Kirman Rugs
Kirman carpets are like no other Persian carpets. For centuries there has been an independent design trend in Kirman in southeast Persia. This unusual small format carpet has a field well covered with tiny flowers, diminutive palmettes and recurving vine segments. The ivory field exhibits a “millefleurs” pattern in detail tones of brown, gold, taupe and beige. The equally soft-toned main border is en-suite with floral sprays and palmettes. There is an air of repose and relaxation. This rug does not try too hard, does not assert itself unnecessarily. Unlike most Kirman weavings, there is no cochineal mulberry red, pistachio green or dark indigo blue. This Kirman is a great choice for a boudoir, dressing room or other space where the feminine reigns supreme.
