Antique Chinese Rug, Origin: China, Circa: Early 20th Century – This splendid antique Chinese rug features an outstanding directional composition decorated with a triumvirate of detailed Chinese dragons that are set over a radiant yellow background. Angular waves with bold contours and polychromatic accents create an earthy base that contrasts the arid field, which is punctuated with colorful ruyi clouds. The magical dragons feature detailed scales, intricate talons and fluid tails that emphasize their powerful countenance. Bold inner borders punctuated with crisp roundels create a traditional frame that is supported by peachy flesh-tone tiles and outer borders decorated with polychromatic pinyin wan fretwork motifs. The bold yet traditional color palette on the antique rug includes creamy whites, deep indigo blues, warm yellows and flesh-tone neutrals that are artfully combined.
