Antique Khotan, East Turkestan, circa 1900. Openwork medallions in a staggered array make up the center of the field design on this courtly antique Khotan, A smaller array of minor elements fills out the field to either end, enclosed by fretwork cornerpieces. A border of snowflake rosettes makes up the mail border, separated from the field by a minor border of meander. The use of only two colors - cool cocoa and tan - allows the precision and balance of the design to occupy center stage.
