9.5'x6.2' antique Kerman Millefleur Wool Rug 19th Century
Kerman carpets have earned their mark as likely the finest rug in Persian history, owing much to the quality of wool derived from generations-long herders in the area. Of even greater interest to collectors of the Kerman is the wide array of designs and natural dyes used on these carpets, with no two rugs ever being exactly alike, even among those sharing a wealth of similarities. And though their ascent as celebrated pieces began around the 15th century, the production of the illustrious Kerman carpet continues to this day.
