Antique Mohtasham Kashan Carpet
Product inquiry form
A fine example of an elegant urban Mohtasham Kashan rug with an intricately detailed allover floral design of twining vines, rosettes and palmettes based on a theme of a sprawling well-trimmed garden labyrinth made up of paths of petals, leaves and cloud-bands drawn to look like vases. The main border and the inner and outer guard strips add to the splendor of the richly ornamented field heightening the overall sense of depth and multitude in the design.
The color palette is very refined and masterful. It is based on a bright madder red and navy blue yet it features a delightful set of secondary hues such as cerulean blue, aqua and salmon pink, which together with the rug’s extremely fine weave and superior quality luminous lamb’s wool, works perfectly to bring out the mastery of attention paid to detail in the making of this regal looking rug.
