This is a magnificent and very finely woven carpet for its size and quality. The design in the border of this late 19th century carpet-not so much the cypress trees, but the floral arrangement between them – immediately indicates this carpets origin. Both in colour and weave, it is typical of those associated with with the products of workshops established by the turn of the century Governor of Kerman, the Farmanfarma. The field design and its use of floral motifs are reminiscent of 18th century ‘millefleurs’ carpets. Wool pile on cotton foundation. Approximate size: 556 x 333cm.
