This finely woven antique Mohtashem Kashan carpet features a garden panel design. The palette is soft but very wide ranging, with shades of navy, sky blue, green, apricot, salmon, camel and ivory.

The weave is fine and pliable, with thin cropped pile and excellent wool quality, all suggesting a date from the late 19th century.

Acquired directly from an exceptional New York family collection.
