Antique Persian Khorassan Rug BB3791 11'7" × 17'4" $90,000

$90,000

A late 19th century Persian Khorassan rug, the dark blue field with a lively allover trellis design of enlarged palmettes, cloud bands and swirling floral vinery within a sand border with scattered floral motifs.

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 antique 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 rugs and carpets.
