Room Size Antique Blue Chinese Rug 49272
Beautiful Room Size Antique Blue Chinese Rug 49272, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Chinese Rug, Circa Date: 1920 – Breaking from many traditional Chinese rugs, which feature a lighter central field, this masterpiece rug seems to invert the classical color arrangement of the style, resulting in a lighter border and a darker outer edge and focal core. Angular stems and movements define the space within the border, which creates a necessary form of grounding that provides the viewer with a guideline as they prepare to enter the nightscape at the heart of the antique rug. Here, the lines of motion are far more whimsical, and the thin curls forming away from the flowers are reminiscent of fairy lights. The foreground motif are arranged in breathtaking symmetry to further define the dreamlike presence within this magnificent antique Oriental rug.
