Extremely Decorative Light Purple Square Size Antique Khotan Rug, Country of Origin: East Turkestan, Circa Date: 1920’s – The wintry tones of this antique Khotan rug are captivating, detailing a delicate pattern aligned within a perfect square. The central, night-blue field is studded regularly with eight-petaled forms, each nested with three layers of differing colors separated by neat, round line-work. These form rows, offset and connected by waveringly thin lines serving as stems which bear four blossoms for every link. In the spaces between each floral ornament, joined by delicate white lines, rest eight-pointed stars like preserved snowflakes. This starry, snowy field is enclosed by a white border, decorated with a black line that wends around in a carefully precise pattern. A blue band rests alongside, white stars spanning its length, joined by black and white flowers. Another white border and a final strip of blue complete this beautiful antique Oriental rug.
