CLOSE UP with portrayals of carnations which are frequently used in finer rugs.

UNUSUAL KIRMAN RUG with a beautiful and complex centre panel of shrubs, urns and masses of flowers. The use of long stemmed carnations, some still n bud, the rest in full flow growing from a bed covered in hyacinths shows the use of centuries old designs. There are two fine necked ceramic urns each almost invisible in the dense colourful plants. The weaver has borrowed floral designs from the nearby village of Ravar in southern Persia where the finest of floral rugs are woven. Reference 3437. Size 230 x 134 cms., or 7ft. 7ins.,x 4ft. 5ins. Euros 420.
