Certainly one of the more exquisite antique Peking rugs from China, this lovely carpet has delicate vine cloud bands arrayed as diagonal strips repeating gracefully across a soft tan field.

Antique Chinese Rug, Origin: China, Circa: Early 20th Century – This fantastic antique Oriental rug — an antique Peking carpet woven in China during the early years of the twentieth century —  is a truly exceptional work that is so masterfully designed and brilliantly crafted that it is in a class almost by itself within the world of Peking Chinese rugs. Delicate vine cloud bands arrayed as diagonal strips repeat gracefully across the soft tan field of what has to be one of the more exquisite antique Peking rugs. Over half the cloud bands are barely discernible because of their tone on tone coloration. The border adapts these motifs and their color effects as an outer frame for the entire composition, giving the whole rug a remarkable visual unity and decorative effect. Simultaneously evocative of the tradition from which it was born and boldly outside of that tradition, this exciting Peking rug is truly a one of a kind piece.
