Antique Khorassan Rug BB4187

Price: $95,000

A late 19th century Khorassan rug from Persia, the caramel field with an allover trellis of palmettes and vinery with scattered fleurons throughout within a midnight blue palmette vinery border.

Carpet weaving has a long and rich history in Khorasan. The region has been famed for fine antique rugs and carpets going back to Timurid times in the late middle ages. Later, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Khorassan became a center for the production of high quality room-sized Persian rugs due to its large stable supply of city-based weavers who could accommodate the larger anchored looms required to produce these larger carpets. Although still Khorasan carpets, many of these are sometimes known by more specific sub-region of origin designations such as Meshad or Doroksh.
