Antique Khotan Rug, Origin: East Turkestan, Circa: Early 20th Century – This exquisite, profoundly beautiful antique Oriental rug – a Khotan piece made in East Turkestan some time during the early years of the twentieth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This stunning piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. This elegant carpet adapts the classic ‘hundred and one gifts’ design of Ningshia type to a new, more angular abstract drawing style with a modern sensibility. Sprays of flowering branches or shrubs float within in the spacious border on a blue ground, preserving the color scheme and design of the field in a unified harmonious whole. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its beautiful design and grand composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
