Vintage Chinese Deco Rug, Origin: China, Circa: 1920 – This stately vintage Chinese Art Deco carpet displays a stunning combination of traditional ornaments paired with novel Art Deco influences. The sumptuous parchment-tone field is framed by a formal monochrome border and decorative finials that display an exceptional level of symmetry. These decorative cornices feature undulating glaucous blue scrolls with fretwork features, stylized clouds and geometric accents that epitomize the Art Deco style. Apricot pinks, soft glaucous blues and dark indigo accents are juxtaposed beautifully in the decorative fretwork compartments. These carefully selected colors have a cosmopolitan art deco style that bridges the boundary between East and West. Somber outer borders ground the composition and mirror the form and slightly rounded corners that define the minimalist inner frame and complex fretwork figures, which give this carpet its distinctive Eastern appearance.
