Kerman Carpet

(DK-124-78)   Antique
8'8" x 16'3" (264cm x 495cm)
Iran, Southeast Persia: Late 19th Century, or earlier
Knotted pile: wool
A great antique carpet from one of the most prolific centers of weaving in Iran. The design is richly detailed and delicately drawn; the color palette is subtle and the light blue used throughout is a special touch.

A relatively early example. The slender proportions indicate this carpet was probably made for a local client, rather than for the export market.
Condition & Remarks
Well preserved, clean and complete, with overall, age appropriate wear. No significant repairs. Still looking great.
