Antique Chinese Rug, Origin: China, Circa: Early 20th Century – This outstanding antique Chinese carpet is a model of elegance and sophistication with its beautifully stylized designs, stark colors and impeccable composition. Spiraling vines with recurving leaflets and flourishing details wind across the creamy beige field leaving just enough negative space to cushion the gradient chrysanthemum blossoms that interrupt the trellis of vines. Glamorous Prussian blue leaflets and subtle tone-on-tone lotus blossoms punctuate the dramatic inner borders and offset the densely patterned field from the elaborate fretwork outer borders. The bicolor outlines and maze of saturated linear figures strengthen the classical composition and add a sense of formality and elegance.
