MANCHESTER KASHAN, Central Persian

("New Arrivals Gallery") Renowned for the use of its exceptionally soft, extraordinarily luxurious wool imported from England, the finest worn Persian Manchester Kashans woven at the start of the 20th century are prized, especially whenever the artistry and craftsmanship are this exceptional. This rug seamlessly combines sculpted botanical motifs of unusual delicacy with fluid vase-and-flower designs to create an exquisitely naturalistic, regal atmosphere. Sumptuous jewel-toned colors of dusky gold, delft blue, cerulean, and bronze enliven every blossom and frond upon a lavish crimson backdrop. It would take many enthralled hours to discover the prolific subtle nuances of color and shape abounding within. Enhanced by the rug's dense weave and excellent condition, a deep inner luminosity blankets the surface of its heavier lamb's wool pile. This piece would be the ideal enhancement for an area requiring graceful beauty and tactile comfort underfoot.
