Chinese Fragment Rug (Size Adjusted) BB6050 8'0" × 11'8"
This circa-1830 antique Chinese fragment rug features an intriguing all-over design of floral abstractions and curving vinery in shades of beige, inky blue and sea-green against a field of light rust. Multiple borders containing contrasting geometric and free-flowing floral designs complete the early 19th century antique carpet. There is evidence that decorative Oriental rugs and carpets have been a significant art form within the Chinese culture for many centuries, if not for several millennia. Mostly in blues and beiges, with classical symbols of longevity, elaborate lotus blossoms, chrysanthemums and birds, these antique rugs are frequently visible in paintings from as early as the Tang Period. For the most part, designs of antique Chinese rugs are as indigenous as those of antique Chinese porcelains and silk textiles, featuring the repeating simple design devices of swastikas and fretwork. Unlike Persian rugs, Chinese rugs are not generally associated with local rug production areas.
