Antique Persian Khorassan Hand Knotted Wool Rug BB6588 15'10" × 24'9" $200,000
Representing the best of Khorassan, a legendary Persian rug weaving center, this genuine antique carpet highlights the country’s profound artistic traditions and unmatched skills of its artisans. The striking impression is provided by the Khorassan rug’s detailed and well thought-out design along with masterful execution and first-rate materials.
The main field flaunts a refined and detailed architectural pattern with floral overtones that is clearly a metaphor for the classic Oriental vase motif. It is enclosed within a series of equally captivating consecutive borders featuring botanical references in the form of flowering climbers and palmettes with stylized acanthus leaves. Rendered in an utterly elegant color palette of off-white, light beige and sapphire with delicate touches of mauve, this Khorassan rug will seamlessly match a wide variety of décors, bringing in a breath of palatial chic and recherché charm.
Let us now get to the subject of workmanship. Just as practically all the awe-inspiring antique rugs from Khorassan, this one was carefully hand-knotted of top-notch wool in accordance with traditional techniques. Such meticulous making has ensured not only its durability but also the softness and luminousness of the pile. Under the condition of proper maintenance, the Persian rug will serve its owners for generations showing no signs of wear or blemish. All in all, it is an investment rather than outlay that will increase in value over time.
