Kashan... "Mohtasham" Kashan: A look at an Antique Persian Rug!

This is a video of an antique "Mohtasham" Kashan.  It is approximately 4'6" x 7", perhaps slightly smaller.  The age of this particular rug has been estimated at 150+ years old.  It is known for a fact to be at least 100 years of age without question.  This is a very nice example of this particular genre of rug, knot density measures in at around 380 kpsi.  There are some low areas with some areas of knot head showing and one small area of reweaving, however overall the rug is fully intact and all original.  For more information on and about kashan rugs, take a look at these posts:
