Semi Antique Persian Hand Knotted Wool Geometric Kerman Medallion Area Rug

About the Item

An amazing handmade Kerman area rug made in SE Persian, circa 1940-50s. Features a red base with a colorful geometric field of flowers. Includes a bouquet along each straight flanked by pendeloques along the corners. The color combinations combined with the amazing intricate detail creates a true masterpiece of the weaver's art, a rug that will bring harmony and style to a room. 196 knots per square inch Kerman, located in the desert of South Persia, has been a major center for trading and weaving. Kerman carpets were one of the first Persian rugs that made it to the Western markets. The rugs were most keenly distributed and sold throughout Europe soon after they surfaced. In the 16th century during the Safavid Dynasty, Kerman rugs first surfaced and were welcomed open arms by the wealthiest citizens of Persia. Around the 19th century, the village of Kerman was destroyed amidst civil strife. Most of Kerman's weavers escaped to the village of Laver in the north of the region where they resumed the creation of their rugs. Because of this mass migration, the Persian Kerman rugs are sometimes referred to as the Laver Kerman or Laver rugs and carpets. Size: 4x6'.
