Antique Kerman Carpet, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa date: Late 19th century – – This beautiful and uniquely worked antique Oriental rug – a Kerman piece made in Persia – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This lovely piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. Woven with a subdued color palette, this Kerman carpet features a spectacular all-over arabesque of sinuous knot-work, compound boteh motifs and intertwining vines with endless curves and strong angles that embody the elegance of Safavid geometry. The stunning composition includes multiple guard-bands, main borders featuring a unique cartouched turtle pattern and a set of Kufic inscriptions placed along the inner and outer guard-bands. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its charming design and strong Kerman composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
