Beautiful and Fine Antique Chinese Textile 48980
Finely Woven Antique Chinese Textile, Country of Origin: China, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – True to the beautiful style of numerous other antique woven Chinese textiles, this exquisite antique textile established clear outlines and forms, designed to draw attention to the concrete figures within without appearing too distracting in terms of details. Here, a relatively dark and cool color palette is applied to maximum effect, enticing the viewer and holding the gaze with skillfully arranged floral elements and dark, contrasting motifs. The outermost border is the thickest, and it features a pitch black background that is home to a dancing collection of petals and vines that wind along the interior like a beautiful network of natural delights. The thinner border within features a smaller and finer collection of lines, and ultimately both frames lead the viewer’s eyes to the core of the antique Chinese textile, where the black background houses symmetrically arranged blossoms and perennials.
