Antique Khotan Rug, Origin: East Turkestan, Circa: Late 19th Century – In the traditional style associated with carpets from Khotan¬†and East Turkestan, this elegant antique rug features a prominent triple medallion pattern framed by multiple borders each featuring a unique design and disposition. Floral motifs featuring closely grouped fruits decorate the outermost borders. Reciprocating vine scrolls decorated with angular foliage offset the yellow inner borders, which are decorated with a monochromatic lozenge pattern. The innermost borders feature a coral-pink pinyin wan pattern rendered in a composition that highlights the relief of each T-shaped segment. Ram’s horn motifs and forked bereket symbols add an impressive counter change effect to the central medallion while scrolling ruyi motifs and radiating rosettes decorate the outlying medallions.
