Notes: 
Very fine Persian Dabir Kashan in perfect condition, c-1920. Unusual purple red background color. High density knotting woven from kork wool, creating an intricate design. From the mid-19th to the early 20th century the finest quality rugs from Kashan were called Dabir and said to be from the workshop of Dabir. Kashan is a city in North Central Iran. We know that there was production of Persian Carpet at Royal workshops in the 17th and early 18th century. Many authors attribute Persian Rugs and Carpet to Kashan in the 16th century particularly of the so-called small silk Kashan Persian Carpet group.
