Beautiful Antique Dragon Chinese Carpet, Country of Origin: China, Circa Date: 1920’s — This beautiful Chinese carpet breaks from the tradition of flowing lines and simplistic colors that many other Chinese rugs bear. The first border around the piece features an extensive series of blue, yellow, red and green lines that all end in a round puff of a cloud, each connecting with the other to create a smaller border within. At the core of the carpet, against a vermilion background of a sky are a series of twisting dragons of all colors and patterns, gracefully moving as if flying through the air amidst an equally bright collection of clouds.
This Chinese Dragon design carpet is composed in vibrant hues of peachy orange, sea foam, and gold, with royal blue and red accents throughout. The candy-striped border leads into a central field that features several traditional Chinese dragons.
