Antique Kashan, Persia, circa 1900 An allover design of undulating vines replete with flowers and palmettes wends its way across the rich burgundy field of this classic antique Kashan. The drawing is animated, suggesting a sense of burgeoning life, while still expressing that stately restraint for which Kashans of this type are so highly prized. An elegant palmette vinescroll border frames the field, set against a navy ground for contrast and reinforced by ivory minor borders. The finesse of the drawing and the weave are matched by the saturated color and lustrous pile.
