Antique Khotan Rug 40447
This unique decorative antique Khotan Oriental carpet is hand-made in East Turkestan.
Antique Khotan Rug, Country of Origin: East Turkestan, Circa date: Early 20th Century - Although the weave identifies this elegant and quite decorative carpet as being an antique Khotan rug from the East Turkestan region, its silky soft coloration, wiry, animated drawing, and its design of tendril palmettes recall the features most prized in Turkish Oushak carpets made at the same period in Turkey. The striking border of angular vine scrolls is also reminiscent of Oushak Oriental rugs, as is the subtle contrast of salmon and cool tans. But the use of smaller multiple borders rather than one large one is in the classic Khotan tradition.
