Vintage Chinese Rug, Origin: China, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Well-balanced and sophisticated, this vintage Chinese dragon rug represents an Eastern take on the medallion and spandrel design with minimalist influences and ample negative space. This distinguished Chinese carpet has the iconic features of a traditional dragon rug with the added appeal of sumptuous silk fibers that naturally reflect light and color. An expanse of luxurious camel-tone ground surrounds the isolated dragon medallion, which features individually outlined scales, a carved beard and celestial ruyi-shaped clouds. Inky blue accents are offset beautifully by the warm, clear camel-tone field. Bi-color accents emphasize the lavish decorations while maintaining a sense of balance, elegance and sophistication. This exceptional contrast gives the robust fretwork decorations tremendous relief. Graphic T-shaped fretwork borders enclose the posh field and emphasize the streamlined geometry that gives the design a cosmopolitan art deco feel.
