Kirman carpets represent one of the oldest unbroken traditions of Persian rug weaving. 19th century Kirman carpets are recognised as exceptional high category weavings. Antique Kirman carpets, particularly those of the Laver group, are known for their fine weaves and intricate drawings in an incomparable range of colours and are often seen in historic houses in the UK and Europe. This early example has a less common creative overall pattern instead of the central medallion motif, framed by several individual borders. The faded gery-blue field provides great contrast for the harmonious vegetable-dyed cololur combination. A wonderful example with an artistic drawing in subdued colours and would be a great addition to a classic or contemporary setting. In good parctical condition.
