View this Beautiful Oval Shaped Ivory Background Colored Antique Chinese Rug, Country Of Origin / Rug Type: Chinese Rug, Circa Date: 1900 – Unique in its presentation as well as its design, this antique Chinese rug, with its simple design and round oval shape is quite a versatile piece that could be used in many different applications and decorating aesthetics. A single rich and thick black outline dominates the edges of the antique rug, creating the perfect contrast to the lighter colors within. An elegant pale gold hue defines the background while a darker shade of gold creates points of contrast within. These darker tones create beautiful lattice figures against the backdrop, appearing like sprawling leaves and winding vines. Adding further contrast to the gold elements are graceful blue motifs, which are most prevalent around the edges of the rug. The blue floral figures are attractively spaced to avoid saturating the landscape, resulting in a fine blend of motion that acts almost like a secondary border before the black one at the outermost edge.
