Extremely Fine Small Size Antique Persian Mohtasham Kashan Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – Drawn in a flawless curvilinear style with an Islimi design, this exquisite and extremely finely woven antique Persian Mohtasham Kashan rug features a delicate octofoil medallion culminating in ornate rosette appendages and Shah Abbasi palmettes that are encircled by dainty floral sprays. Well-defined vine scrolls with flourishing tendrils and spiraling calyces emphasize the impeccable inset medallion composition. Stunning curvilinear borders filled with a large-scale reciprocating pattern continue the beautifully oxidized color scheme and dainty floral theme, which showcases filamentous vine scrolls and carefully outlined petals. This small rug from Persia displays an awe-inspiring interpretation of a traditional medallion pattern enhanced by expertly colored botanical motifs and sweeping curvilinear vine scrolls that have a timeless elegance.
