Antique Khotan rug, East Turkestan

ref: 6696)

Mid 19th-century central Asian rug with a classic triple medallion design on a red field, the medallions filled with flower heads and pomegranates, the main border depicting a repetitive cloud band motif. The colour scheme of this carpet is typical in its combination of terracotta-red, dark and bright blues and yellow - all natural dyes. Carpets from this area and of this age are quite rare. Some old repairs, overall good condition
