ANTIQUE CHINESE RUG. 4 ft 7 in x 3 ft (1.4 m x 0.91 m).

Small Of Antique Chinese Rug, Country Of Origin: China, Circa Date: Turn of the Twentieth Century – Here is an intriguing antique Oriental rug – an antique Chinese rug that was woven in China around the turn of the twentieth century. While there is no one quality that unifies the vast body of antique Chinese rugs and carpets, there are certain things that appear more frequently than others. For instance, the pallet expressed in this comely antique carpet is quintessentially Chinese; the pairing of blue and ivory is a favorite among Chinese rug designers, and appears in Chinese carpets of many types. This carpet, for instance, occupies a certain style of Chinese rug design that falls between the more ornate and richly decorated examples and the more minimalist, straightforward examples. In this carpet, a simple unadorned band of blue serves as the border, while the entire field consists of ivory crossed over with a complex pattern of tessellating shapes. A highly decorative carpet, this antique rug from China is an intriguing example of an important school of rug weaving.
