Vintage Chinese Deco Rug BB3350
Vintage Chinese Deco Rug Description:
A modern second quarter 20th century Chinese oriental rug, the cinnamon field with an overall pattern of floral roundels and leafy vinery with delicate scrolling interlace beneath an overblown contrasting polychromatic bouquet of sensuous blossoms and delicate vinery near the lower right corner.
These tend to be more open and spacious than the antique oriental rugs for sale from the Western Asia. Maintained mostly in blues, golds, ivories and beiges, with classical symbols of longevity, elaborate lotus blossoms, chrysanthemums, cloud-band motifs, foo-dogs and birds, antique Chinese vintage rugs are frequently visible in paintings from as early as the T'ang Period. In contrast to earlier Chinese antique rugs, the twentieth-century Chinese Art Deco rugs can be quite spare in design and quite radical in color, catering to the western taste shaped by the birth of the modernist movement. They often comprised of geometric or abstract patterns. The most recognizable rugs from the 1920's and 1930 were made by Walter Nichols – the American who manufactured deco carpets in Tientsin.
