Hand knotted in rare quality wool, this 5x10 antique Khotan runner originates from East Turkestan circa 1920-1930. This rustic drawing enjoys a blissful union of patterns in an abrashed colorway of rust red, beige, brown with light green and orange accents to bring a whiff of softness to an otherwise mature scale. The medallion pattern follows a distinctive symmetry that harmoniously combines with geometric outline in the corners and elegant floral pattern on the field. The aesthetic quotient of the imagination is further enhanced with a repetitive leafy pattern that reflects the artistic style and sensibilities of the early 19th century. Prevailing in healthy condition, an exemplary piece well suited for entryways, hallways, staircases and kitchens following a neutral palette - amongst the wide possibilities of applications.
Connoisseurs may Note: This particular Khotan rug enjoys more prevalent European stylistic floral imagery accompanying the predominantly Oriental medallion patterns (cloudband and rosette motifs to name a few). This sheer duality between the field and border lends to the collectibility, while the omnidirectional symmetry and exceptionally rich colorway lend a masculine, sophisticated presence able to play off a handsome variety of styles. Especially ideal for country homes, farm houses, cabins, ski lodges and even foyers.
