Antique Khorassan Rug, Country of Orirign: Persia, C. 1920 — A neutral shade of tan gives this antique Persian Khorassan rug circa 1920 a vast appeal. At the center of this carpet is a large rectangle containing the floral motifs and vine scrolls that are seen throughout the rug. This design structure is characteristic of Persian rugs of this era, and lends a certain recognizable appeal to the piece. The width of the borders vary and serve to draw the eye toward the center. Delicate shades of very light blue and creamy off-white keep this design light, while the swirling floral pattern is accented with deeper tones of navy blue. From the layered borders to the breathtakingly intricate floral pattern, this Persian rug is both delicate and dramatic.
