Cream Background Room Size Antique Chinese Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: China Rug, Circa Date: 1920’s –
A thin outer border is set in contrast to the more dominant inner border. This balance of composition creates a light finish to the commanding presence of the inner border’s bold use of dots and corner-work.
Between the two guard borders of this soothing room size rug from China is the main border which feature a delicate and meandering patterned vine that connects the floral design patterns of alternating blue and brown color. While sharing the color of the piece’s inner floral design, these vegetative formations stand apart visually from the antique Oriental rug’s inner flowered design. Notable for its more substantial aesthetic, this outer print balances the eye’s focus and lends the overall design a firm and rhythmic foundation.
