PAIR of Antique Kashan Mats, Probably Atashoglu Workshop, Circa 1915
PAIR of Antique Kashan Mats, Probably Atashoglu Workshop, Central Persia, Circa 1915 – Each rug measures approximately 1’11” x 2’8″.
A pair of antique Kashan “mats” or “Poshtis”, terms used for very small rugs measuring around 2 feet by 3 feet. Woven in the central Persian city of Kashan which is known for producing some of the finest Persian rugs during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Some people might consider these to be “Mohtasham Kashan” rugs but we think they were more likely produced by the Atashoglu workshop. The navy field contains a red medallion and is framed by red corner spandrels and a navy border with large flowerheads.
These Kashan rugs have beautiful wool and are in generally excellent condition. They are durable enough for moderate floor use and would also be beautiful on a wall or table.
