Large Antique Chinese Rug, Country of Origin: China, Circa Date: Early 20th Century / Around 1900 – This stately antique Chinese rug showcases an extraordinary Eastern composition with compound medallions that create a decorative repeating pattern. The beautifully styled field is emblazoned with ornate geometric medallions that feature gradient accents, auspicious star motifs and dainty butterflies, which are one of the most revered symbols for love and romance. The traditional combination of ecru and Prussian blue captures the natural minimalist style of the Far East while the ample space surrounding the isolated motifs exaggerates the grand proportions of the spacious composition. Beautifully drawn main borders adorned with an elaborate pinyin wan fretwork pattern complement the ornamental spandrels while supporting the ruyi clouds that decorate the stately outer borders and conclude the composition of this decorative antique Chinese rug.
