MANCHESTER KASHAN, Central Persian
13' 5" x 22' 3"
409cm x 678cm
Highly sophisticated in design, this antique Manchester Kashan palace-size oriental carpet presents a luxurious lamb's wool pile and a glowing salmon field. Manchester Kashan represent an elite subgroup of classical Persian carpets that feature extremely fine knotting, chiseled floral designs, a silken texture and soft, glowing hues. They are usually seen in the 4x6 to 10x14 range, and virtually never in carpets of great size. This antique Kashan carpet is one of the finest examples we have experienced in our three decades of business.
