There is a reason why antique Art Deco Chinese rugs for sale are the favorites of both carpet aficionados and collectors. Their unique designs combined with high quality draw the attention while never appearing overbearing. This particular piece was woven by a skilled artisan circa 1850’s and shows a lot of elements characteristic for that era in both designs and the choice of colors.
The pattern features a very popular floral motif that is composed mostly of climbing vines and delicate flowers crowning them like precious gems. The pattern has a very strong form achieved thanks to the difference in pile’s height. When it comes to the color palette we are given a delightful combination of silver and beige with elements of tasteful blue to bring out the pattern’s charm.
