Large Vintage Chinese Art Deco Carpet BB6723 14'10" × 18'8" $120,000
An antique early 20th century Art Deco antique carpet, the indigo blue field with an overall beige floral vinery pattern around an upper and lower roundels formed of feathery birds and around a pair of central vine-formed roundels within a gold vinery border.
These tend to be more open and spacious than the Oriental large colorful area rugs 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 beautiful rugs are frequently visible in paintings from as early as the T’ang Period. In contrast to earlier Chinese vintage 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.
