Antique Chinese Oriental Rug 42410
Certainly one of the more exquisite antique Peking pieces from China, this lovely carpet has delicate viney cloudbands arrayed as diagonal strips repeating gracefully across a soft tan field.
Chinese Rug, China, Early 20th Century – This antique Peking from China is the epitome of restrained elegance. Four oblong medallions containing pairs of dragons float in a field of fretwork that is so finely drawn that it virtually recedes into the background, making the carpet appear like an open field composition. This magnificent antique Chinese Oriental rug boasts several narrow borders frame the field – a blue-ground vine scroll enclosed by two others with ivory ground, nicely echoing the color effects of the field.
