Antique Khorassan Persian carpet, circa 1900The field of this stately antique Khorassan consists only of open, subtly abrashed reddish terracotta pile. The ornament is restricted entirely to the borders with their finely detailed designs. The largest or main border is a linear excerpt of a classic Herati design. Set against a deep blue ground it provides a nice accent within the golden borders, and they all provide a lovely contrast to the soft redness of the field.
