Chinese Art Deco Rug, China c. 1920 – This exquisite Chinese art deco carpet showcases a superb allover pattern of graphic zebra-stripe lancets that have spectacular symmetry and strong pop-art appeal. Pointed zebra stripes with a precise stacked arrangement form a series of staggered windows with pronounced arches. The precise linear arrangement of each apex produces strong vertical movement and a stunning illusion that each arching stripe recedes into the distance or jumps forward and culminates in a series of small-scale lozenges. Overlapping scales artfully cascade behind neighboring motifs in a streamlined manner that highlights the smooth, aerodynamic style of art deco design. The constant repeating pattern has many alluring qualities, including the strong geometric lines and graphic achromatic colors, which are timeless and define a novel standard of elegance that became known as art deco.
