Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present this beautiful new addition to our featured arrivals collection, a rare and highly sought after Motasham Kashan Persian rug. This striking classical rug is a standout representative of the extremely limited 19th century Mohtasham Kashan rug production that has always been of profound interest to Persian carpet connoisseurs. Displaying the Mohtasham style’s signature detailed depiction of chisel-edged flowers, richly detailed naturalistic floral sprays emanate from a set of twin vases, inventively covered with a mosaic of individually colored squares. The rug’s unusual undyed ivory field serves to beautifully enhance the many striking jewel tone hues within the piece, filling its corners with regal carmine and the base of its medallion and main border with a glorious tone of incredibly difficult-to-render inky blue. Numerous resplendent shades of greens and blues adorn its realistically drawn flower petals, illumined by a superb grade of wool and an extremely fine weave. The area size of this piece makes it incredibly versatile in display, and it would be a wonderful addition to the collection of any Persian rug connoisseur.
