Antique Khotan, East Turkestan, Late 19th Century – A classic Chinese medallion design repeats down the field of this stately antique Khotan. Smaller medallions and stylized pomegranate branches fill the adjacent areas of the deep blue field, while diminutive meander cornerpieces combine with the borders as a larger framework to give the field an oblong oval form. The main border has a precisely rendered cloud design, while the inner border utilizes a diagonal meander pattern. The dominant golden tones of the border system with graphic detail in burgundy and blue continue the color scheme of the field, thereby endowing the design with a pleasing decorative unity and design texture.
