(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery") A masterwork Mohtasham Kashan of early vintage, this regal area size rug reveals many of the attributes that have contributed to this style's pre-eminent place in the Persian rug pantheon. At nearly 170 years of age, this incredibly tightly knotted piece was woven with great delicacy of design and a striking clarity of line that allows the myriad floral shapes to each cast their own individual character. Featuring a spacious elliptical reserve, a nested medallion and grand pendants, its classic spectrum of hues glow with patina. Soft coral, aqua, bluebell, and light oak tones interact in riveting splendor between honeyed ivory and inky blue zones. It is easy to find a floor or wall space for such an enchanting gem as this.
