About

Rare Antique 17th century Kerman vase carpet, country of origin: Persia, circa 17th century. Size: 11 ft 5 in x 20 ft 2 in (3.48 m x 6.15 m). In the antique rug industry, rugs of Persian origin are considered to be particularly valuable. The superior weaving techniques and intricate designs found in antique Persian rugs make them some of the most coveted rugs on the market. The rich history and tradition of weaving in Persian culture gives savvy collectors many varieties of antique rugs to choose from. However, one particular classification of antique carpets from Persia, the antique Persian Vase carpet, is considered to be the most valuable and sought after carpet in the world. Persian Vase carpets have made history in recent years for fetching incredibly high prices at auction. The large scale pattern features elegantly designed botanical elements and meticulously handpicked colors, which contribute to the harmonious nature of the piece. The weavers of the early Vase carpets, rather than simply designing carpets, as practical floor-coverings, designed with the meticulous hand and aesthetic sensibility of fine artists – an approach that is readily evident by simply gazing upon this piece.
