(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 28, No. 1, p.28) Exemplifying the artistic heights achieved by Persian classical weaving nearly 140 years ago is this regal, multiple medallion oversize Laver Kirman carpet. Its signature sublime color palette is offset here by a dramatic, inspired use of nearly black midnight indigo to breath-taking effect. In this major rug-making center since the 15th century, highly talented weavers evolved an aesthetic of timeless appeal that was funded by the Persian Court, used as gifts of state, and for the wealthiest citizens. Today antique Laver Kirman rugs have experienced a revival, now frequently chosen for luxury contemporary decors. Learn About This Rug Type
