Antique Khotan Carpet, East Turkestan, circa 1900Three small floral medallions float across a field covered with an intricate diagonal fretwork or basketry design on this striking antique Khotan. This fretwork is so finely work that it a functions almost as an open field. A gold-ground vinescroll border provides an effective contrast to the abstract geometry of the field.
