A small antique East Turkestan Khotan rug in earth tone, Country of Origin / Rug Type: East Turkestan Rugs, Circa date: 1900’s – The all over design of the antique small scatter size rug is a combination of geometric designs offset by a floral order to create contrast.
The field with the tribal design rug consists of a single motif in a regular pattern that balances beautifully with the geometric designs in the outermost border. This artistic and weathered small size antique Khotan rug from East Turkestan has both horizontal and vertical symmetry. That is in spite of the fact that the central field design motifs are not emphasized in a way that makes them stand out.
Floral vine scroll design border picks up the colors that are used throughout the rest of the antique rug, giving it a sense of balance, unity and completeness. The blending of the rug colors and uniform design give this antique carpet a feeling of harmony that it would bring to any room. The geometric borders are reminiscent of Chinese rug designs and this antique Oriental rug would work beautifully in an Asian themed room, or in any classic traditional design. The repetition of the colors in the field and outermost border enhance its sense of balance.
