Antique Floral Persian Khorassan Rug 50437
Antique Floral Persian Khorassan Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Early 20th Century– This Persian rug is centered with a wildly complex arrangement of flowers, leaves and angular design elements. The design is symmetrical about the long axis and displays a variety of colors from blues to yellows, dominated by red tones picked out in intricate stitching over a cream background. Several bands surround the rectangle, creating layered borders filled with more stylized floral patterning. The Khorassan’s sections are demarcated by a total of four matching bars of comparatively simple red and blue flowers interwoven with twining black vinery. The widest border on this rug bears a complex floral pattern set against a black field, creating a darker boundary that balances the whole.
