Antique Khorassan Persian Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th century – Although the floral detail of this lush antique Khorassan is an immediately ornamental composition based on symmetrical repetition, it nonetheless functions as a sprawling pictorial image of a natural environment – a paradise scene replete with various birds, lions, and foxes. These are all rendered in golden tones and red against a dramatic blue black ground. The main border is small in scale – a simple, a reciprocal trefoil design that gives pride of place to the field.
