Washed Out Tribal Decorative Antique Khotan Soft Neutral Rug 40447
Unique decorative antique Khotan Oriental carpet is hand-made in East Turkestan.
Antique Soft and Decorative Tribal Khotan Rug, Rug Origin: East Turkestan, Woven date: First Quarter / Early 20th Century – Although the weave identifies this elegant and quite decorative carpet as being an antique Khotan rug that was originally crafted in the East Turkestan region, its silky soft coloration, wiry, animated drawing, and its design of tendril palmettes recall the features most prized in Turkish Oushak carpets made at the same period in Turkey. The striking border of angular vine scrolls is also reminiscent of Oushak rugs and other Oriental rugs, as is the subtle contrast of salmon and cool tans. But the use of smaller multiple borders rather than one large one is in the classic Khotan tradition.
