Antique Khotan Oriental Rug, late nineteenth centuryThis luxuriant antique Khotan is the epitome of classic Oriental elegance and style. Warm salmon field is filled by a central star medallion with smaller openwork medallions above and below, along with a few geometric fillers. The whole composition is enclosed by two elegant borders, one with a cloud design and the other with diagonal fretwork, whose primarily golden tone nicely frames and contrasts with the field.
