Beautiful Small Size Vintage Chinese Art Deco Rug, Country of Origin: China, Circa: First Quarter of the 20th century (around 1920) – Here is a beautifully composed vintage rug – an art deco period Chinese carpet, resplendent with a representative art deco design and marked by an impeccable weave. Art Deco rugs such as this example right here, are prized by collectors and admirers of early twentieth century design, especially the bold geometric qualities of art deco pieces. A reciprocal pattern of circles and concave squares constitutes the field of this charming little Arts and Crafts rug, a fascinating study in vintage rugs. Small rosettes fill the circles while the concave squares are divided into triangular facets of differing color. A closer look of this art deco period carpet reveals that the triangles collectively form diamonds enclosing the circles. As part of this blend of subtlety and graphic boldness, the main design utilizes dark linear emphasis while most of the design is articulated by softer shifts of color. Beautifully composed and featuring a pleasing art deco pattern, this vintage small rug is a delightful composition.
