Chinese Vintage Rug

Chinese Vintage Rug BB5630

Price: $45,000

This circa-1939 antique Chinese rug features a delicate all-over design of elaborate geometric abstractions in shades of purple and ochre against a field of green. Scrolling botanical motifs comprise the border of the 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 vintage 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.
