Vintage Chinese Animal Design Handwoven Wool Rug BB7135 16'3" × 16'6" $100,000
This gem of Chinese weaving art is everything connoisseur would look for. Woven circa 1920, the rug depicts five dragons with the golden one resting in the center in the likeness of sun and four others surrounding it. Golden dragon’s piercing gaze immediately catches attention, leaving spectators unable to look away.
Light blue shapes on the pattern’s bottom connote heaped clouds, surrounding peaks of three splendid mountains. The sandstone color of this carpet is an excellent background for various shades of blue, orange and beige visible on its surface. This antique rug owes its unique pattern to the fact that originally Chinese crafts were produced exclusively for domestic use – thus preserving traditional designs, loved and admired by the Chinese from time immemorial.
