(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 28, No. 1, p.1) This 160-year-old Persian carpet exemplifies the riveting originality and complexity of design as well as the aged, softly contrasting color palette that the very finest 19th century Laver Kirman Oriental rugs offer. On its deep rose red field, conical ornaments evocative of the cypress tree punctuate a quietly sumptuous, continuous pattern of flowering boughs and graceful vinery. This high collectible rug is further distinguished by a densely-ornamented intricate series of borders that continues the masterful visual opulence to its edges. Learn About This Rug Type
