U-2242 - Vintage Persian Kerman Rug
5ft 01in X 8ft 10in
Kerman - Kirman Rugs
This attractive and tonally muted Kerman from southeast Persia was woven when densely covered grounds were particularly popular. The field color is a soft light teal with accents of dark brown, old gold, ivory and light green. The main border is equally filled with flowering vines and other elements repeating those of the field. Almost randomly, motives outlined in dark brown seem to drift in and out of focus. The allover pattern has rosettes, leaves and layers of vines. The color variation or abrash is fairly subtle and is not the usual horizontal band variety, all too obvious in carpets with diverse dye lots. The soft, almost feminine palette makes this rug ideal for a boudoir, dressing room or bed chamber.
