Early Laver Kirman carpet

The city of Kirman in north-east Persia has been the centre of fine rug weaving since the 17th century and enjoyed a renaissance in the 19th century when rug weaving became more widespread. The city then established itself once again as a centre of high category weaving in the best Persian tradition. 19th century Kirman carpets, particularly those in the Laver group, are known for their technically superior weaves, delicate drawings and an incomparable range of  varied colours. They are highly sought after and are often seen in grand historic houses in Europe and the UK.

An early Laver Kirman carpet with a rare light sky-blue field and a harmonious vegetable-dyed colour composition which has aged nicely. The remarkable tight weave explains the clarity of the drawing. Has some slight age-related patina/wear but otherwise is in good practical condition.

A timeless classic to blend in a wide variety of settings.

Gallery Yacou is a family owned business run by Robin Yacoubian and his father, Ezekiel, and has been in the family for over four generations specialising in antique, decorative and contemporary carpets.

We passionately believe in the importance of choosing the right rug for each individual room, and that the rug not only complements the space but adds depth and soul to it.

With our broad depth of knowledge and collective experience, we are able to advise our clients on the various options we have in our collection that would complement the various spaces.

We work with a range of clients including leading interior designers and architects, members of the design industry, hoteliers, private clients and collectors. Some of the projects for which we have provided rugs include grand listed buildings, hotels, embassies, modern city apartments, 17th century abbeys, country houses and residential homes.

We have just recently relocated from our showroom on the Fulham road to our studio/workshop in North London.

We are members of the antique dealers associations, BADA and LAPADA, and an Industry Partner of BIID, the British Insititute of Interior Design, and exhibit annually at the BADA & LAPADA Fairs. Please email us using the enquiry form opposite, if you would like a complimentary ticket to any of these Fairs.
