Antique Khotan, East Turkestan, nineteenth centurySprays of flowers arranged as a trellis or Mina Khani pattern of Persian derivation unfold with an almost mathematical precision across the field of this splendid antique Khotan. The pattern is so closely worked that little of the rich crimson field shows through. The adroit coloration of flowers achieves diagonal effects, complementing the ground color. The open simplicity and geometry of the borders provides a soothing framing contrast to the floral richness of the field.
