Blue Color Antique Oriental 19th century Chinese Area Rug, China, Late 19th Century – Although the weave and coloration of this elegant and unusual antique carpet are undoubtedly Chinese, the Mina Khani or vine scroll trellis design laden with palmettes and flowers is classic Persian. The drawing of the design is excitedly kinetic with delicate zig-zagging quality throughout. The effect of the design elements in red, soft blue and ivory against the black ground is strikingly effective, in perfect contrast to the pastel effect of the vine scroll border that frames the field of this magnificent antique Chinese Oriental rug. The silken reflective quality of the wool pile is also characteristic of the finest antique Chinese carpets of this kind.
