Antique Persian Rugs — Small Paisley Design Antique Persian Khorassan Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: late nineteenth century The design and coloration of this lovely antique Persian Khorassan carpet comes from the repertoire of embroidered Kashmir shawls. It is remarkable that the field and border alike are all composed from the same basic motif – the Boteh or Paisley – arrayed as a staggered allover design in the field, and as an affronted longitudinal pattern in the border. This gives the small size paisley design antique Persian Khorassan rug a remarkable homogeneity or unity while the different types of repetition and rhythm provide dynamic variation.
