The design intricacy of this antique Persian Khorassan carpet is so skillfully rendered that the eye of the observer is immediately drawn its ornate, breathtaking and royal impression. Filled with floral blossoms and vine scrolls, the pattern itself covers every square inch of the large rug’s field and borders.
Time is surly needed to be able to absorb and take in all of this antique rug’s beauty. At first glance, our mind may be racing with thoughts such as… How many borders are there? What are these design elements comprised of? What are the colors that we see?
However, as the observer continues to gaze at these details, certain shapes and colors start to become more apparent. Such as the five small guard borders that flank both sides of the main border are each separated by a thin strand of the same texture and pattern. These wonderful borders are also adorned with beautiful and intricate floral designs that are seen in the main field as well. This replication creates a feeling of continuity that is quite fascinating.
With time, the eye begins to recognize the different colors in a clearer way. All of a sudden we start to see the beautiful sky blues, greens, the light pops of cream and the vibrant cranberry red hues. The combination of the navy blue background and lighter colored floral patterns create a beautiful and exciting juxtaposition where the floral design seem to be resting ontop of the blue background (like flower petals that are peacefully floating on the surface of a beautiful lake).
The amount of pattern that we see could only be achieved by weaving of a rug that is of a very high quality. This higher knot count is what enables the weavers to pay attention to even the smallest of details. This is further proof for how highly skilled the weavers of this antique Oriental rug were.
For those individuals who are seeking finely woven and intricately designed antique carpets, this piece would be hard to beat. This large size antique Persian Khorassan rug is one of the most luxurious and fine quality rugs you could hope to find.
