Description

This last quarter 19th century Laver Kerman measures 10’7” x 14’6”. It has an ivory field containing a large four pointed medallion outlined in a tobacco colored frame containing a floral motif with architectural touches. The left and right side of the center medallion has borders extended into the field ending in a floral motif. At the north and south ends of the medallion are two short columns with Doric capitals ending in large floral bouquets. The corners of the field are worked in the same colors as the majority of the rug and contain the same motif as the center only quartered. The upper and lower corners of each side of the field are connected by fluted columns. The major border consists of a repeated line in the shape of fans in red separated by a meandering vine in several shades of blue, rose, red,and green and there are six interesting minor borders. The rug is evenly low but since it’s on an ivory ground you don’t really notice it. This rug is very finely woven. The ends and edges of the rug are finished in red. They are complete. The rug is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $200.00.
