Antique Chinese Rug, China, c. 1920 – This enchanting antique Chinese rug of ephemeral, pale gold boasts a subtle beauty, the initial impression of which is only deepened upon closer examination. In what may be described as an exercise in contrast, delicate lines of a deep shade of purple are carefully arranged throughout the field of this charming rug in an allover pattern of hexagonal bands. Interrupted occasionally by complementary leaves of lilac, these wide bands manage to simultaneously convey a sense of vase as well as a sense of vine. This duality is further explored and commented upon in the elegant border that frames the field: as pale gold as the rest of the rug, the border is similarly decorated with bands of purple lines and vegetation that appear to dance with one another. A piece whose simplicity belies a deeper articulation, this antique Chinese rug is truly something special.
