Antique Chinese Carpet, Origin: China, Circa: Turn of the Twentieth Century – Here is a truly beautiful and impeccably designed antique area rug – an antique Chinese carpet that was woven in that country around the turn of the twentieth century. Characterized by an ephemeral and beautiful minimalist design, this antique Chinese rug is a rich example of fine, traditional Chinese rug production. The color pallet is especially soft – the field of the carpet is colored a very soft shade of rose tinged ivory, while the expanse of the large field is characterized by a gold tinged ivory. The detail work that appears throughout the borders and the field are primarily a light shade of blue – a favorite among traditional Chinese rug designers. Perhaps what is most notable about this striking Chinese carpet is its large portions of negative space – most of the field consists of emptiness, as the details appear scattered throughout. The overall effect is one of restraint and balance – both central notions in classical Chinese design. A beautiful and unique carpet that captures the essence of the finest antique Chinese rugs, this antique carpet is an exceptional example.
