Rug with garden design
Khotan
East Turkestan
Circa 1830
206 x 96 cm (81 x 38 in.)


Knot count: 9 H x 8 V = 72 kpsi
Colours: brick red, coral pink, light blue, light yellow, dark brown, ivory (6)
Condition: medium to low pile. Scattered areas of repiling. Rewoven upper guard stripe.
Notes: An unusual pattern for Khotans, consisting of two rows of five compartments floating on a coral pink background punctuated by multicoloured rosettes. Five compartments contain the longevity motif, four have a geometric network of palmettes and one a fairly unique hooked element. The overall arrangement of the design reminds me of Safavid garden carpets.
