Fine Persian Kerman carpet, Southeast Persia, Hand woven in Iran Fine wool on Cotton foundation.

A superb ornate Kerman carpet. This is an example from a specific group of Kerman weavings defined by the plain field with floating  floral medallion surrounded by a non defined border woven with a complex floral pattern. This border format is inspired by 19th century European carpet designs. This amalgam of design traditions, ‘east meets west’ is a feature seen in Persian revivalist weavings from the late 19th century onwards.
