Kashan Mohtasham with special medallion


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
  • A typical ‘orange/red’ dye
  • Purple silk selvedges
  • Fine weave

This elegant specimen has been adorned with a large dark blue strong medallion placed in the middle of an ivory field decorated with colorful floral motifs. The piece is features by a general ‘soft’ color palette, also in the masterfully drawn spanderls. The piece is in very good condition for its age.
