Breathtaking and Rare 17th Century Gallery Size Antique Khorassan Persian Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Seventeenth Century – The imposing, monumental design of this classical antique Persian Khorassan rug consists of cruciform and scalloped cartouche floral medallions alternating down the center. To either side are halved, inverted sequences of the same medallions. The intervening spaces on the red ground are filled with large, diagonally-jutting branches or tendrils and small floral sprays. The vine scroll main border, bold in its proportions, is strong enough to compete with the monumental of the field, but still narrow enough to harmonize with the overall shape of the carpet. A masterpiece of design and color, fit for a museum.
