Antique Shabby Chic Persian Khorassan Carpet 48297
Antique Persian Khorassan Rug, Persia, Circa 1920 — This shabby chic antique Khorassan carpet embodies the delicate, wild loveliness of a lush garden. Pale crimson and earthy shades of cream and brown comprise the main color scheme of this striking and complex piece. A broad border rich with masterful detail frames the heart of the piece, a breathtaking design made all the more singular with age. Its traditional floral pattern depicts the lupin, the lotus, and myriad other flowers, all delicately rendered in a sweeping pattern that brings to the careless, wild beauty of nature. Even as the design recalls the gentle, unfettered wildness of the landscape, the pattern maintains the rigid, structured symmetry that defines these traditional carpets.
