Undulating medallions with rich arabesque detail unfold in staggered arrangement across the soft champagne field of this supremely elegant antique Kerman. Those with a deep blue ground stand out, while those with the champagne coloration essentially recede into the ground, making the complexity of the pattern more subtle. Borders of floral sprays continue the coloration and rich subordinate detail of the field, preserving an overall uniformity of design texture that brings home the decorative effect of the carpet as a whole.
