Silk Sino-Kashan Carpet

5 foot 2 inch by 8 foot 1 inch.

This a nice is a very nice Chinese made Kashan style silk carpet. The color is very good and the weave is excellent, the finish is average. This rug is silk. I burnt a few stray threads and this rug passed the burn test.

The dark areas are just shadow. The Rug is rectangular it was just photographed at an angle.

Silk Rug, Red China (P.R.C.), late 20th century. 5 foot 2 inch by 8 foot 1 inch.

Structure: Asymmetrical knot. 19 knots per horizontal inch and 19 knots per vertical inch. 361 per square inch (5580 per square decimeter)

Yarn Spin: Z.

Warp: Silk

Weft: Silk

Pile: Silk

Ends: Fringe.

Selvages: Overcast with red silk.

Further Notes: New.

The dark area is a touch of shadow. This is a very nice Chinese copy of a Persian city carpet and is very striking as either a floor or wall piece.

Pretty rug but the finish is not nearly as nice as a Kashan or Turkish silk rug. Chinese slave labor cannot compare to the craftsmanship of free weavers in Iran and or Turkey. My Government supports a One China Policy but they forget that Red China are the rogue provinces and the Republic of China is the legitimate government. At least in the R.O.C. there is no slave labor.
