Oversized Antique Persian Khorassan Rug BB6708

Price: $220,000

A finely-knotted early 20th century Persian antique khorassan rug of exceptional vitality, the camel field with a whimsical allover pattern of stylized palmettes and scrolling arabesques within a blue palmette and vinery border.

Khorasan consists of two words, “Khor” and “Asan,” meaning “rising sun” as befits a region on Iran’s eastern border. Bordering the Salt Desert to the west and Afghanistan and Turkmenistan to the east the Khorassan region (or more correctly, province) is home to many well-known Oriental rug workshops in the towns of Amoghli, Khamenei, Makhmalbaf, Saber, Zarbaf, and, of course, Meshad. With a good supply of soft wool, high quality craftsmen, a mix of larger city-based workshops, looms in smaller villages, and access to the Silk Road, Khorassan has a reputation far and wide as a source of the largest and most varied assortment of beautiful Persian antique area rugs and carpets.

Exclusive collection of antique, vintage, Persian rugs for sale including our famous collection of very large area rugs by Doris Leslie Blau.
