A Beautiful Soft Yellow With Touches Of Mauve Color Antique Khotan East Turkestan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: East Turkestan Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – This softly stated yellow and mauve antique Khotan East Turkestan rug has aged in a way that gives it a sense of refinement and timelessness. The bold colors of this gorgeous antique Khotan rug have softened, allowing time to change its very character and essence. Motifs that once stood out as the main attraction have now faded, allowing what were once minor elements of the design to take center stage.
The design of the antique rug uses a central medallion deign motif that consists of flowers whose bold outlines still form the central focal point of the antique Khotan East Turkestan rug. The corners of the field use geometric designs that give it a formal and somewhat Art Deco feel. The East Turkestan rug consists of three main borders that balance with the area taken up by the central field.
Diagonal geometric bands in the center border give the antique Khotan East Turkestan rug a distinctly Asian feel, as does the treatment of some of the floral rug design motifs. If one looks closely, the ghosts of the bold designs that once graced this tribal rug can still be seen. This antique Khotan rug lends a timelessness and sense of antiquity to design of the room. It would work well in a traditional interior design setting, or as a unique addition to break up the lines of a more modern contemporary interior decor by adding a soft, delicate nature to the room.
The bold rug colors of this magnificent piece may have faded, but this beautiful being still has many stories to tell. It is sure to be a treasured and loved family heirloom rug in any collection.
