Antique Khotan, East Turkestan, circa 1900An allover pomegranate vinescroll trellis stylized in strident geometry unfolds dramatically against a deep blue-black ground on this stately and monumental antique Khotan. A main cloudband border encloses the field, its gentle spiraling curvature nicely counterpointing the angular accents of the pomegranate vinescrolls. Finely detailed borders of Turkoman hooked motifs make up the outer borders, reaffirming the geometry of the field on a smaller scale.
