In this consummate example of the 19th century Laver Kirman tradition, this collectible floral carpet in quite difficult to find dimensions offers an masterful allover pattern. Curved tipped, large scale palmettes ingeniously anchor the leaf and vine design that supports a vast, inspired spectrum of exceptionally drawn flowers. Departing from the ivory ground format most commonly used for this style, an understated, innovative thistle ground is presented, the constantly changing striations of this hue accentuating its measured beauty. Deftly dyed and harmoniously incorporated into the elaborate design are soft peach, pistachio green, celadon, and buff, all delicate tones that emanate from a patina over 140 years old in the making.
