Beautiful Large Size Antique Ivory Chinese Rug, Country of Origin: China, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This beautiful Chinese rug features a field of ivory with navy and bone-white accents. Staggered in regular intervals across the body, highly stylized, dark blue Chinese dragons are posed. Their artistic forms are stitched as though painted, like calligraphic ideograms. Each is contained within a white form, almost indistinct against the ivory backdrop, floral in shape and touched on one or two corners by a hint of the navy hue, dewdrops that create a stronger resemblance to a flower. Scattered between the dragons, additional white flowers are similarly touched at times by the dark color. A border of light vines with dark blue flowers edges the antique rug.
