Antique Khotan Rug from East Turkestan, circa 1900The monumental medallion format is particularly effective on this incomparable antique Khotan, especially because of the rich coloration. The tones are saturated, but still soft in hue with beautiful contrasts that work to great effect in the cloud border as well, giving it a grand, almost sculptural quality. The drawing is crisp and precise making this carpet an altogether classic example of its type.
