Fine Antique Persian Kashan Rug, Persia, First Quarter of the 20th Century – Following the great weaving traditions of Kashan, this antique Persian city carpet is a hand-knotted masterpiece with richly detailed designs, nuanced colors and impeccably composed patterns that display extraordinary technical and creative skill. Refined qua trefoils and classical octofoil tiles linked by knot work accents create an exquisite repeating pattern that’s placed over a dark, heavily patterned ground. The oceanic background is emblazoned with delicate botanical branches, florets and dainty palmettes that are magnificently detailed. The intense Persian-ate geometry and highly evolved pattern-making skills are highlighted beautifully in the complementary main borders, which display a complex tiled pattern separated by strong latticework dividers. The balanced patterns, chic colors and remarkably detailed shading are tremendously impressive, especially considering that this piece is part of a perfectly matched antique carpet pair.
