Rare Oversized Antique East Turkestan Khotan Rug 50347
Very Rare Large Oversized Antique East Turkestan Khotan Rug, Country of Origin: East Turkestan, Circa Date: 1900– A navy field dominates this oversized, antique rug from East Turkestan. Smattered with a regular, interconnected pattern of flowers and fruits, the dark color is strongly contrasted with white, like a brimming sky full of stars. The orientation of the round fruits and flowery springs alternates at the midpoint of the Khotan rug, creating a line of leafy buds. A set of nine, warmer-toned borders contains the central field, each separated by bold lines in brown and blue. Interlocking, maze-like patterns fill some of the bars, and flowers decorate several more, some connected by firmly angular stems, others embraced by curving accents.
