Samarkand (Khotan) Rug BB4672 8'10" × 11'0" $12,000
East Turkestan rugs, including those of Samarkand and Khotan, are rare beauties, born in the oasis towns located among arid deserts and vast steppes of Central Asia. The Samarkand (Khotan) rug before your eyes is an exquisite example of this refined, centuries-old craft.
The vintage rug’s main field carries an arabesque-like trellis embellished with delicate racemes and flower heads. It is enclosed within a series of equally compelling borders bearing classic oriental geometric motifs largely referring to nature that complete the composition. Everything is rendered in jewel tones of red and navy blue, with touches of beige and indigo. Royal and recherché in character, this exceptional antique rug will make a proper statement in a wide gamut of modern interiors.
As befits vintage rugs of Western China, this one distinguishes itself with impeccable workmanship. It was carefully knotted by hand of top-notch wool by a skilled artisan. Such making has ensured not only the soft and pleasurable pile but also quality that lasts for generations. If maintained properly, the piece will serve its owners many years, remaining in perfect condition.
