Silk Mohtasham Kashan Carpet

Availability: In stock

    Fine antique silk Persian Mohtasham Kashan Carpet Central Persia. The soft red and antique white field richly decorated with flowering vines and palmettes around a pale blue pole medallion framed by indigo spandrels and ivory borders of angular fruiting vines between multiple flower head minor borders and arrowhead outer guard stripes. Measuring 210x135cm (6’9”x4’4”), its design and fantastic silk foundation suggests the rug was made in the workshop belonging to master carpet weaver Mohtasham. His workshop was established in the 1840`s in the city of Kashan where rugs and carpets piled in either silk or wool were made. From the outset the quality of these weavings was exceptional, consequently, output was very limited. Designs were intricate and a combination of excellent quality dyes , `kurk` (soft) merino wool and seldom lustrous silk together with his exacting standards ensured that these weavings were immediately considered the best of the period both in Persia and Europe. This fantastic silk rug dates from the 1900 and given the soft silk palette is attributable to the second generation of the Mohtasham family. Both ends original but trimmed. Some minor stitches otherwise pile and carpet as a whole is in very good condition.
