Antique Persian Khorassan Rug 48788, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1920 – By using a canvas-like background to the Khorassan rug’s sharply defined foreground elements, the artist skillfully creates a beautiful Persian rug that effortlessly conveys grace and symmetry. Several rigid borders surround each other, each containing varying shades of brown and blue. These colors stand against each other elegantly, drawing the viewer’s attention along their shape closer and closer to the heart of the antique rug. Here, the canvas-like effect is the most pronounced. Several breathtaking fronds and petals are rendered in a symmetrical series of arrangements along the sides and corners of the interior, their forms reaching inward, as if further leading the viewer.
