Large Size Antique Chinese Art Deco Carpet, Origin: China, Circa: First Quarter of the Twentieth Century – Here is an exciting and unique antique rug – an antique Art Deco carpet that was woven in China during the early decades of the twentieth century. Beautifully minimalist in its design and execution, this lovely Art Deco carpet consists simply of a band of black, a field of red, and a smattering of realistically rendered floral details. The minimalism that characterizes this piece is both consistent with traditional Chinese design aesthetics, and also excitingly modern. The concepts of simplicity and balance have been central to Chinese design for centuries; many minimalist antique rugs from China predate the advent of modernism in the west by decades and in some cases centuries. In this antique Chinese carpet, the rich contrast between the dark black of the border and the fiery liveliness of the red that is the field infuse this simple piece with a powerful energy. The beautifully woven floral details break up the composition in a highly effective manner, adding a refreshing splash of color and life in a minimalist masterpiece.
