Kashan Rug, Persia, Last Quarter of the 19th century – This mesmerizing antique Persian Kashan area rug captures the essence of the Mohtashem moniker. The lavishly appointed field is adorned with an extraordinary geometric medallion and cypress-like pendants enveloped by spectacular space fillers. This awe-inspiring Mohtashem rug is the product of impeccable technique paired with the finest materials and most elaborate designs. A circular medallion with radiant, highly geometric appendages occupies the center of the field while leading to the elegant emerald pendants. Branching vine scrolls topped with poly chromatic flowers meander around the creamy white field and segue to the artful inner border, which is defined by strap work details with coved accents. Robust, richly colored borders emblazoned with turtle variants and bracketed calyxes provide a distinguished frame that flatters the handsome, beautifully drawn field, which displays an outstanding variety of clear, robust colors.
