Ca. 1950. Large Oversize Persian Kerman Carpet from the mid 20th century. A hint of 18th century French Rococo influence. Delicate scalloping design elements boldly express a tender elegance. Highly expressive contours exhibit only the most masterful use of a curvilinear motif; far superior to most any example of this vintage.
This example is part of the Dilmaghani Cyrus Crown collection of fine hand knotted rugs and carpets.
