Antique Persian Kashan Rug BB2998 13'0" × 21'0" $70,000
An early 20th century Persian Kashan antique carpet, the camel field with an allover trellis of palmettes, leafy vinery and angular strap work within an unusual dense camel border with leaves and floral motifs.
These outstanding carpets embody the essence of top-notch Persian craftsmanship with their impeccable execution as well as sophisticated and gracious patterns. Many of Kashan rugs incorporate silk into their designs, with the foundation made usually of soft cotton. Nonetheless, the finest examples of Persian rug patterns build upon pure silk which is applied both to the foundation and the pile. The knot count may range from 100 to over 800 knots per square inch for the most outstanding specimens. Although Kashan rugs incorporate a wide variety of motifs, the most popular ones are central medallions and Persian floral patterns with red, ivory, blue and soft green as prevailing hues. Well-made and magnificent, Kashan rugs are a treat to all lovers of timeless beauty and undisputable elegance.
