ANTIQUE PERSIAN PALACE SIZE HAND KNOTTED WOOL CARPET, 10' 8'' x 15' 4'': This Persian Kashan rug has a midnight blue colored field that is covered with flower heads, buds, leaves, and palmettes, done in colors of red, pink, yellow, white, blues, rust and green. The work in creating this rug shows a sophistication and skill that is the mark of weavers who were true artists. The rug has a small inscription found in the field near one corner that probably gives the name of the center where this palace size rug was made.
CONDITION: This rug is very worn in many areas and has some old moth damage, but would look worlds better after a good cleaning and some judicious dying of the blue field.
