LAVER KIRMAN, Southeast Persian
7' 1" x 10' 4"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) This outstanding antique Laver Kirman carpet is a quintessential example of masterful classical weaving. A vast range of scale, compelling and rhythmic use of dramatic contrast and a display of both delicate and deep tonalities prepares this small room size piece to be placed for maximum visual enjoyment, both from across a room and up close. In fact, because of its very good condition, it could ornament a busy entry or other high traffic area. A double-layered midnight indigo central medallion grounds this stunning rug and is framed by gorgeous ruby spandrels. Many floral elements of various sizes and pleasing designs rest on a soft burnished gold field while six delicate, perfectly drawn borders frame the entire piece to complete its visual perfection.
