Antique Chinese Dragon Rug, China, 1920 — This Antique Chinese Dragon Rug speaks of world-traveled sophistication. A thick black border hugs a series of intricately mirrored decorative geometric shapes, bringing a sense of contrasting firmness to the otherwise fluid, free flowing nature of image crafted into the antique rug. An ancient Chinese dragon glides through the clouds – its eyes fierce but it’s body languid with flight. The dragon is decorated stunningly with impressive and detailed stitch work depicting each curved scale on its body. This same detailed work is seen in the billowing clouds, dancing in the current of the sky. Each delicately stitched border and edge in the clouds gives one the sense of uninhibited movement and expression. The dignity captured in this piece by the dragon and the cultured touch it brings with its Chinese designs, makes this antique rug a fitting statement piece.
