(High-Decorative) In this wondrously botanical, excellent quality antique Persian Laver Kirman rug, striking naturally dyed hues of carmine red, gold and apple green distinguish a wondrous depiction of the entrance to a heavenly garden. Two exquisite, overscale birds draw the viewer's eye through the profuse, masterfully executed foliage. Its broad borders reveal its weaver's great dexterity. The main border contains swirling vinery surrounding crown-like orchids, while its pair of guard stripes reveal a ghosted image of this theme, drawn in unfathomable detail. This well over a century-old Persian city rug remains in heavy pile condition for many decades of additional floor use. Learn About This Rug Type
