Southeast Persian Antique Carpet
8' 4" x 12' 7" (254cm x 384cm) Circa 1875
This elegant room-size carpet exemplifies the subtle coloration and delicacy of line for which 19th century Persian Laver Kirmans are relished. The tremendous fluidity of its chiseled design and continual nuances of its naturally dyed hues combine to create great visual delight. An expansive double medallion of the deepest midnight blue extends into oversize palmette pendants while floating atop a parchment reserve among a sea of blossoms. The soothing color palette consisting of merlot and soft rose tones is seamlessly juxtaposed with carefully placed veins of burnished gold and brass, as well as punctuations of persimmon throughout. Its layer upon layer of detail work is deeply restful, with a sophisticated suite of intricately detailed borders eloquently framing the entire composition.
