Antique Lavar Kerman Carpet
Product inquiry form
This fascinating early 20th century antique over-size Lavar Kerman features an all-over design of exquisitely drawn rosettes and palmettes encircled by elaborate blossoms and foliage. This extremely richly detailed execution of design offers to the viewer an immense visual harmony of soft flowing lines, which, when combined with the masterful use of color, also gains wonderful depth. Light seems to be soaking in and bouncing off alternately as the eye wanders through rows of beautifully rendered botanical motifs in contrasting lighter and darker tones of exquisite light and dark jade green, sienna red, salmon pink, ruby red, ivory and gold. The detailed highlight effect achieved by tone-on-tone coloration of the individual motifs, the outstanding quality of luminous, luscious wool used and the extremely fine, almost silken quality of the weave add significantly to the high aesthetic impact of the glowing surface of this splendid carpet.
The excellent craftsmanship of this antique over-size Lavar Kerman is visible in every detail, it is highly decorative and collectible. It is complex yet subtle, its splendor is elegant. It would be a wonderful foundational piece for grand classical interiors.
