(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This Mohtasham Kashan large room size carpet offers unusually squarish proportions that support the magnificence of its diamond central medallion. Studded in a mind-boggling display of small to tiny flowers across its surface from the central azure peony to the outer edge of the borders, this carpet celebrates the proliferation of botanical life forms. The use of abrash-softened carnelian, filling massive corner pieces, the measured inner medallion and minuscule border blossoms with a glorious intensity. The equally spirited border captures avian activity as well, with lively pairs of birds attending each flowering shrub. With a splendor expressed through the unusually fine knotting of the Mohtasham tradition, this carpet’s superb condition can ensure it will offer its uplifting artistry for generations.
