Vintage Persian Kirman Camel Handwoven Wool Rug

$ 55,000
  • Description
    A decorative early 20th century Persian Kirman (Kerman) antique rug, the spacious camel field with a mirrored overall design of delicate flowering branches and shrubs arranged to frame an unusual centerpiece within a camel scrolling floral vine border.

    Colors can range from ivory, blue and magenta to a more golden and saffron cast. As unique as their designer, no two Kerman carpets are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for Kirman rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Kirman round Persian rugs were woven explicitly for moneyed buyers from the West, there were also local consumers which only added to the diversity of the Kirman rugs. This diversity is seen in the range of motifs which can range from well-known and original Persian motifs to western motifs; striped and repetitive motifs, vase, Toranj (Citron), symmetric, garden, animal shapes, and pictorial rugs.
