A vinescroll trellis or Mina Khani design of lush, leafy arabesques repeats with consummate grace and symmetry across the raspberry field of this extraordinary antique Kerman. Here the color combinations of ivory, soft ochre, and forest green against the raspberry ground are simply superb. The border has a lavish strapwork arabesque vinescroll set against a creamy ivory ground that offers the perfect framing contrast to the palette of the field. Such a mastery of classic Persian design and color is unusual even among the finest Kermans of this kind.
