Vintage Chinese Carpet Description:
An early 20th century antique Chinese carpet, the cream field having a subtle spacious design of lush trees and exotic birds within a floral motif border.
Decorative rugs for sale for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, vintage looking rugs were a sought-after status symbol demonstrating wealth and good taste. Watch any period film set in the late 19th or early 20th centuries and you will almost certainly see an oriental antique carpet on the floor.
