(High-Collectible) ("Toronto Treasury, Part 2") The elite of the elite, this room size carpet from the incomparable Mohtasham Kashan tradition is a quintessential example of their exquisite design sense, extraordinary technical perfection, and ineffable harmony of color. Here a legion of flower motifs of stunning diversity blankets this creation, yet evokes a world of balance and order. Variations of a dahlia-like blossom appear strategically again and again throughout this carpet to create a hidden structure that anchors the elaborate design, beginning at the center of the innermost medallion. Adding depth at the center of the carpet, a midnight indigo lobed, eight-petaled outer medallion rests on an aged parchment-toned field. Presenting one of the finest renditions of the classic Mohtasham main border design, here the urn-like baskets are understated in proportion to large circular blossoms that command the space, creating an intriguing hierarchy of proportion.
