This splendid light blue and burgundy antique Persian Khorassan rug was produced in Persia during the 1920’s. The rug weavers of Khorassan are known as producers of some of the finest quality carpets in the world. They stand out in their use of color and high level of detail in the designs. This beautiful antique Persian rug masterfully blends exquisite color and a delicate garden design to create a unique and charming piece.

This truly magnificent antique carpet uses predominantly shades of burgundy, brown and light blue in various levels of saturation. The use of different saturation levels, and the striated rug abrash color effect, allows the artist to create fine detail without the use of an extensive color palette. Several elements of light blue antique Persian Khorassan rug work together to enhance the balance and sense of order in the design.

Aside from the simple palette, the Khorassan rug uses symmetry to create a central design that is similar to a medallion rug. A central cluster of flowers surrounded by pendants and formal corners defines the geometric organizational structure and major shapes of the design. It has a complex main border with a contrasting background that distinguishes the field from the main border of the highly decorative rug. This creates an eye-catching contrast that makes this piece a unique and one that would look stunning in either a traditional or contemporary room.

The blue background of the central design is reminiscent of a reflecting pool in a beautiful garden setting. This luxurious rug is based on a classic Persian design but blends the elements together, creating a colorful and essential piece for oriental carpet enthusiasts. It is a beautiful antique Persian Khorassan rug that adds tranquility and peace to the space.
