Orange Color Minimalist Open Field And Light Blue Border Large Antique Khotan Carpet 2901

Size: 12 ft 10 in x 16 ft 4 in (3.91 m x 4.98 m)

This antique carpet from 19th century Khotan features a stark amber field framed by wide borders decorated with a combination of strong counterchange patterns that meld influences from Persia and East Turkestan.

Samarkand Rug, China, Late 19th Century – This lovely antique Khotan rug is remarkable for its clever restraint. With its empty field, attention focuses in the arabesque cartouche borders derived from classical Persian carpets to the west. But the wonderful palette of warm terracotta complemented by soft blues and greens in luxurious velvety pile is the true glory of the rug. The small checkerboard elements set within the sinuous curves of the border add a novel and unexpected effect.
