(Connoisseur-Caliber) This extraordinarily finely crafted room-size carpet from the incomparable Mohtasham Kashan tradition is a sterling example of their exquisite design sense, unparalleled technical perfection, and ineffable harmony of color. Its elegant fluted medallion anchors the field’s multi-hued display with a rare blue celadon base tone. The profusion of floral forms that surround it is each very finely drawn with the signature Mohtasham delicacy. In contrast to the spaciousness of the field, densely filled spandrels and borders based in shades of midnight indigo to deep sapphire richly add astonishing complexity to this splendid rug that includes a procession of charming birds.
