A majestic and exceptional antique Kurk Kashan rug from the early 20th century in outstanding condition. One of the best examples we have seen from Kashan, the variety of dyes, quality of wool and the workmanship to implement this intricate classical design make this rug one of the best examples.  The soft kurk wool used is dense and cut finely and to perfection across this desirable rug.  With jewel like colours, this is a beautiful and collectable rare rug in perfect order.

Kashans are highly treasured and classed among the very best Persian carpets and rugs. Kashan is north of Isfahan in the centre of Persia, this is also a town where fine rugs and carpets were woven, both have similarities in design and colour.  Kashan is the oldest carpet-producing city in Central Persia. Famous for its production of silk carpets, carpet weaving was revived in the late 19th century. There are different grades of Kashan rugs due to the the wool used and the best were known as Kurk or Mohtasham Kashan rugs.  The kurk or kork wool was the finest and softest wool from around the sheeps neck.

We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire & the UK by appointment. Please request a home visit to select a preferred day and time for us to show this beautiful rare antique rug in situ.
