Antique Kashan carpets rank as one of the finest of all Persian carpets. The city of Kashan was the centre of fine rug weaving during the 16th century Safavid period and some of the best classical pieces are attributed to it. High category superior quality pieces being were woven at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.

A fine workshop weaving of the early 20th century with an understated design and colour combination. The muted blue-grey colour field has a pleasant natural colour variation (abrash) which adds great depth and richness to the overall monochrome drawing.  An attractive feature is that the colours of the central field and the main borders are the same rather than the contrasting ones usually seen in other examples.

A timeless example with a quiet formality to blend in a wide variety of settings.
