Beautiful Rare and Extremely Decorative Antique Room Size Khotan Rug, Country Of Origin: East Turkestan, Circa date: 1900 – Many of the best Khotan rugs have designs with one or more medallions. This specific antique Khotan rug one has rows of small medallions arranged as an allover design, like we see in the Turkoman rugs from further west. Smaller secondary forms between the medallions also recall Turkoman Yomut rugs, but the intervening pale blue forms are an extraordinary addition to such a design. These connect the roots of Khotan rug weavers to the Chinese tradition, as does the spectacular border that envelopes the field. Still, what is most impressive, is the unusually large size of the carpet, a scale rarely encountered in the antique Khotan rugs.
