Persian Khorasan Extra-Large Carpet – Palace Size

This Persian Khorasan carpet is published in;

THE PERSIAN CARPET, ‘The Fabric of Life’, Essie Sakhai, Woodbridge, 2008.

pl. 297,  pp. 363-364.

A vast and tightly woven late-19th century
Dorokhsh carpet from Khorasan. The dark blue field is
covered with an elegant version of the Herati pattern
organised in such a way as to create parallel ‘waves’ down
the entire length of the field; a masterly piece of design. The
rich yet subdued palette, with its emphasis on browns, blues
and dark reds, is characteristic of late-19th century Khorasani
weaving. A magnificent piece.

Persian Khorasan extra-large carpet handwoven from wool in Iran. Items with these proportions are significantly larger than standard room size and considered Palace Size.
