About the object

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 with high category superior quality pieces being woven at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.

This elegant Kashan bears the signature of a well-known masterweaver's workshop which produced unique pieces during its era. It has a balanced overall pattern and its subdued colour combination of ivory and muted chocolate brown is the same throughout the central field and the borders, a unique aspect making it easier to place within a room. A stylish timeless example to complement a wide variety of settings.
