This truly impressive antique Oriental rug — an absolutely gorgeous antique Khotan rugs made in East Turkestan toward the end of the nineteenth century — is something of an historical dossier on the history of the aesthetic evolution in antique Oriental rug design. With a pattern going back to the earliest known carpet designs, this impressive antique Khotan has rows of quartered volute medallions set against a golden field. Narrow borders with hooked motifs, no less atavistic in derivation, furnish an appropriate frame for the field, allowing it to predominate in the overall effect of the piece. As Khotans go, this example is incomparable — which is saying something significant, due to the very well deserved reputation enjoyed by Khotans as Oriental rugs of the highest caliber.


This rug is in very good condition. The two ends are complete and secured. The sides are complete and secured. There is no dryness in the foundation. This rug is clean and floor ready. Please contact our rug experts at auction@nazmiyal.com or call us for any questions you may have at 212.545.8029.
