It is a beautiful handwoven Persian original carpet signed Kashan original Farshchian antique fine,

Kaschan is the name of one of the most well-known types of Persian carpets. As there is no official translation between Persian/Arabic script and German/

Latin script, one can usually find differing spellings such as: Keschan, Keshan, Kaschan and Kashan.

Kashan carpets are some of the best classic Oriental carpets. The knotting is done with a Persian knot, not with the

much more common Turkish knot used for Persian carpets. This knotting technique can probably be traced back to the Seljuqs and their invasion in the 11th

century, even though the oldest carpets have been found in graves as early as 400 B.C. The technique was perfected during the time of the Mongol rule

of the previous two centuries. This weaving technique for Kashan carpets was

placed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010.

Size: approx. 206 x 134 cm (without fringes)
