Midcentury Samarkand Purple and Brown Hand Knotted Wool Rug BB6997 3'4" × 6'8" $12,000
Samarkand and Khotan rugs made in the oasis towns of East Turkestan are true flowers of this arid landscape and the vintage rug before your eyes emanates with beauty in full bloom. Its face carries a design of geometric and floral medallions, enclosed by an elegant border with a flowering climber. By combining Chinese and Middle-Eastern aesthetics, the design of this vintage carpet showcases the immense diversity of Samarkand craft.
The color palette of this vintage Samarkand rug boldly flaunts purple, complemented by brown, carmine, beige and gray. Every color is muted for proper balance, due to which the composition will easily match a wide variety of modern interior arrangements, bringing in the recherché charm of Oriental artistry.
Although made in the mid-20th century, this antique rug looks like it just came out from the hands of the weaver. Thanks to thorough hand-knotting of the finest wool in accordance with centuries-old techniques, the structure of the rug is firm and dependable. If properly cared for, this carpet from the Vintage Rugs in New York City collection of Doris Leslie Blau is going to exude its bohemian, free-spirited aura for many years without any signs of wear.
