circa 1925 Persian Laver Kerman antique Oriental rug measures 116 X 1510. This
is a very interesting rug. It has a garden design consisting of six rows of
squares. Rows 1, 3 and 5 are filled with a prayer niche motif with cloudbands and floral motifs. Rows 2, 4 and 6 are composed of an arched
window motif. Each one of the nine windows is filled with cloudbands and
flowers. The entire field is divided into nine sections each containing six
separate images such are arched windows and prayer motif. The upper part of
the field consists of a triple row of what appear to be tiles in the same
motif as that used to separate the three large sections. The images within
the nine sections are separated by a column with a Corinthian like capital.
The border is very interesting. It is unique in my experience and brings to
mind the border of the Pazyrk carpet except here the men on horseback are
back to back and pulling something between the two of them which looks like
a beehive. The horses are all different. The border has a navy blue ground
and there are four pair of reciprocal borders. There is a lot of color in
this rug. There is a pale rose, green, blues, tobacco and yellow. The rug
has an overall calming effect. One of the interesting aspects of this rug is
that the motif in the field is based on the square root of three. There are
three major sections each section containing three sections. The smaller
sections when combined are equal to nine. In each major section there are
three minor sections forming six in each minor section forming twelve in
2/3rds of the sections forming eighteen in all sections. I would be shocked
if you read this far, but take my word for it
this very complicated rug is
designed in multiples of 3. Im not sure if anyone else would find this
interesting but I thought Id throw it out there! The rug has complete ends
and sides. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with
insurance of $175.00
