MOHTASHAM KASHAN "VASE RUG", Central Persian

(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“Spring 2019 New Acquisition“) An astonishing, warm auburn shade and rare secondary palette coupled with utterly exquisite floral drawing and extraordinarily fine knotting creates a deeply profound artistic dynamic. Delicately rendered petals, boughs, and architectural features hide several taupes and buff accents that support the pas de deux between pale peach and celadon that is everywhere in the rug. Deepest sapphire blue provides an iridescent contrasting tone while the occasional spot of buttercup yellow adds a quiet element of surprise. This heavy-pile example of the inimitable Mohtasham tradition offers the happy situation of being able to place this piece even in higher traffic areas. Learn About This Rug Type
