A semi-antique, very large Kerman area rug. This Persian wool rug is hand-knotted in a palette of cherry red, pink, and cerulean. It features a riotously exuberant floral design offset by an open red field. The design begins with a central medallion with pendants. It forgoes traditional borders and guard rails in favor of a single, large oval frame to the field. This territory is filled with intricately patterned bouquets, vines, and foliage, including hyacinths, raisins, periwinkles, and other flowers. Selvedges are overcast, the rug finishing at either end with short wool warp fringe. It is marked on the reverse.
- there is some discoloration throughout the field; a small hole in the central field; areas of heavy wear in the center; fraying near the edges; could benefit from professional cleaning.
139.0" W x 0.25" H x 200.0" D
- measurement includes the fringe; approximately 11.6’ W x 16.7’ D
