Antique Silk Mohtashem Kashan Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa 1900 — Bright, vibrant colors allow the finer details of this rug to spring to life. Round blossoms stand out as the most prevalent motifs presented in this Mohtashem Kashan rug, and the skillful use of contrasting shades allows the bright colors and forms to dominate the borders of the piece. At the carpet’s center, amidst all of the more rigid borders are several flowing outlines and shapes, themselves housed within larger, graceful mandalas. It is at the carpet’s center that the finer details really shine through, where they are unified through the colors and forms.
