Antique Persian Khorassan Botanic Handmade Wool Rug

$ 65,000
  • Description
    An early 20th century antique Persian Khorassan rug, the indigo blue field with a dense allover trellis of trees, flowering vinery, feathery leaves and palmettes within a camel floral vinery border.

    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 Oriental 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 rugs .
