The original antique from which this Kirman Medallion pattern rug was adapted probably dates from the 19th Century. The elaborate curvilinear design and field thickly strewn with arabesques and natural floral elements is a typical characteristic of rugs classified as Kirmans. Another almost constant characteristic is the use of many borders...usually five or seven...often decorated with plant vines. Also typical is the variety of colors with the predominance of ivory, blues and reds. The color palette used in this pattern comes entirely from our Multi-Color Panel Kirman, making it a perfect complement. Emphasis has been placed on the rich indigo blue, brick and madder reds, tobacco golds and browns, olives and accents of soft aqua, soft coral and burgundy. Throughout the field, the colors have been abrashed using many shades of each color, providing a stria effect typical of aged vegetable dyed yarns.
