Chinese Art Deco Rug, Origin: China, Circa: Early 20th Century – This phenomenal antique Chinese art deco rug depicts a modern composition with novel patterns that are strategically placed to emphasize the expansive negative space of the neutral field, and typify the aesthetic of vintage rugs from China. Polychromatic bars set over monochromatic roundels create an illusion of depth that tricks the eye and helps the isolated motifs appear to float over the buff ecru background. Dramatic side pieces with sweeping notched corners and dimensional shading frame the minimalist field while effectively emphasizing the asymmetric composition. With its neutral colors and clean geometric lines, this antique Chinese art deco rug has a timeless countenance that is innovative, modern and supremely stylish. This piece is in mint condition and the pile is quite silky and soft.
