Kashan Rugs: Older/Antique Kashan Rug 1st half 20th

Older/Antique Kashan Rug

Kashan Rugs are among the very best of the Persian carpets. This Rug is a medium fine Kashan Rug and has some age to it. My supplier said antique but I think he was a touch optimistic. Older is fair so I use "Older/Antique Kashan Rug".

While this is not the highest knot count it is more than adequate to pull off the design. What makes Kashan rugs so popular is the design. The field is red and the medallion and corners are blue. That achieves a nice balance and then the main border is blue but the guard borders are a light color. If the guards were dark then this rug would not nearly work as well.
