Antique Persian Mohtshem Kashan Runner Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th century – Nothing compares with the elegance and beauty of a rug created by none other than the famed Hadji Mollah Mohammed Hassan Mohtashem. In the late 19th century, Mohtashem and several other master weavers went on a mission to restore the Persian rug-weaving industry to its former glory. They began reproducing many of the classic designs of the 16th-century Persian courts.
Mohtashem is considered a master artist, and his designs were often complex and a reflection of the traditions of those who came before him. He is known for beautiful medallion rugs, as you see in this rug. His designs often used traditional color palettes that were softened to match the contemporary tastes of the time. This makes them perfect for modern homes where you want to add a touch of elegance and classic design.
This runner rug makes an excellent foundation for a traditional design with fine antiques, or you could use it to add refinement to a contemporary room. It is the perfect shape for a long hallway, or you could use it to create a connection between two areas of the home. Many designers use rugs, such as this one, as the foundation for a vignette along a wall that features a few of your favorite pieces.
One of the things to look for in this rug is a few purple threads woven into the edges of the rug. These threads are the mark of an authentic Mohtashem rug. The repeating medallion design of this rug will make the space look longer, and the beautiful colors are vibrant yet soft. Mohtashem rugs are among the most collectible in the world. The gorgeous floral design of this piece brings a touch of nature to the space and creates an inviting space.
