Antique Chinese Runner 48975
Antique Chinese Runner 48975, Country of Origin / Rug Type: China Rugs, Circa Date: 1920 – Runner rugs from China are renowned for their pleasing use of borders and contrasting colors. The framing of the borders and corners results in an almost painting-like effect, transforming the activity at the heart of the antique rug into a freshly decorated canvas. Strong, sunny yellow and elegant, floaty beige stand out against inky black and stony blue tones, the colors coming together to create a natural degree of contrast that brings to mind images of a bright, sunny morning. Large, blossoming petals line the length of the Chinese rug’s center, leading the viewer’s eyes down its magnificent surface.
