Kerman signed: Mohamad Hossein Birjandi VAG167 carpet from Persia / Iran - CarpetVista Collectible

Kerman signed: Mohamad Hossein Birjandi VAG167 carpet from Persia / Iran - CarpetVista Collectible | Styles and origins of Persian carpets | Scoop.it

For centuries Kerman has been known for the production of some of the finest of Persian carpets. It's remoteness and isolation from other regions strategically favoured development of extremely beautiful and distinctively characteristic weaving traditions. With very little influence from the outside world, artistic expression flourished and the designs of Kerman remained unaltered for an extremely long period of time.

 

During the 1950's demand for larger sized carpets increased and this lead to the production of unusually large Kermans in more subdued colours with down-toned designs. The more traditional Kerman designs were replaced with intricate floral sprays set on an open field normally with pastel colours such as blue, ivory or rose.

 

This carpets shows and demonstrates the master craftsmanship of the Kerman weaver. The carpet has a very detailed floral border and center medallion set on a red field.

 

This elegant piece by the master weaver Mohamad Birjandi, is unique due to its size and rich colour palette. A sure favourite that appeals to collectors and interior decorators alike.

Carpet is availabel from CarpetVista collectible collection on the following link: http://www.carpetvista.com/collectible/Kerman/carpet_120152-Kerman_signed_Mohamad_Hossein_Birjandi.html
