Rare Kashan ‘Mohtasham’
The rugs woven in the worksop of Hadji Mollah Mohammed Hassan Mohtasham are rare and world-famous. These rugs were finely knotted with kurk lamb’s wool in the late 19th century/early 1900s (circa 1880-1910). Mohtashams are recognized for their unbelievable quality of the materials and of the weave, adding to these:
- a unique drawing style inspired by earlier Farahan weavings (Mohtasham’s wife was from Farahan) with floral patterns being more ‘geometrical’ than usual
- The use of soft and shiny kurk lambswool
- A typical ‘orange/red’ dye
- Purple silk selvedges
- Fine weave
This absolutely magnificent piece was finely knotted in a very rare format and displays quite a unique scheme, with a deep blue border and another inner oversized ‘Mohtasham red’ cornice. The central panel has been adorned with a large central medallion, highly stylised. The piece is in overall very good condition.
