Early 20th Century Chinese Yellow, Pink, Blue and Brown Handmade Silk Rug BB6903 6'2" × 9'0" $19,000
Chinese Art Deco rugs are well known thanks to their dazzling designs, but also great care with which they were woven. This piece, handmade using highest quality silk, sports an interesting pattern. On the main filed we can see a rather modest composition of leafy vines that seem to curl and climb. The frame, however, is much more opulent. Peony flowers in full bloom are accompanied by delicate stems and leaves, as it they were being protected. The color palette is certainly bold – bright yellow tastefully contrasts with elements of pink and blue, but a bit of brown helps to keep the whole composition together.
Vintage rugs – they are essential objects of desire of not only vintage trend followers but all aficionados of beauty and sublime design. There is a good reason for such vast recognition as vintage carpets constitute the core of taste and artistry of the 20th century progressive thought. They are clearly defined by the past century’s celebration of new ideas, modern lifestyle and the Renaissance of all arts which happened about that time. The category of antique oriental rugs has many faces – there are numerous aspects such as historical period, style, fashion, culture, symbolism and philosophy which add up to form the dazzling array of vintage carpets.
