Oversize Antique Samarkand Khotan Rug, Country of Origin: East Turkestan, Circa date: Mid 19th Century – Setting itself apart from many other antique Khotan rugs, this stunning piece, from the exotic region of East Turkestan, is unique in its size, presentation and design flow. The soft yet bright and happy yellowish gold colored background alternates between muted tones and vibrant ones, creating a striking degree of contrast and variety that establishes a warm theme throughout this breathtaking antique Khotan rug. At the very center of this antique rug, the field itself, houses elegantly both flowing and geometric shapes of pomegranates, flowers, vases and so much more. Touches of milky white and cobalt blue tones define the multitude of petals and blooms, creating an incredible degree of contrast that seems to breathe life into the settling shapes. The flower arrangement in grey-colored vases adds a touch of the earthy, allowing the rug to feel at home in any domestic scene. Not only a rare example that predates many of the Khotan rugs seen today, this impressive yet decorative Khotan is both a work of art and source of joy and inspiration to any who are lucky enough to have the pleasure of being in its presence.
