Antique Khorassan Persian Rug 41782

A central star is enclosed by a larger ogival medallion in blue against a sandy gold field with blue corner pieces echoing the outer medallion, creating an overwhelming sense of balance and harmony throughout the rug. Rich vines and beautiful, lilting arabesques undulate poetically within each of these individual elements, elaborating the design to a point of incredible intricacy and complexity, all without making it any more difficult to understand or appreciate. Arabesque borders on a champagne ground enclose the whole design with an elegant and graceful finality.
