Vintage Chinese Deco Carpet, Origin: China, Circa: 1930’s – Here is an alluring and distinctive antique Oriental rug – a vintage Chinese Art Deco rug, woven in China during the early decades of the twentieth century. Starkly minimalist in its overall composition, this antique Chinese Art Deco rug is portioned into three unequal sections of broad shapes of color, with hardly any detail work to speak of. The carpet is dominated by the reddish hue that fills the entire upper two-thirds of the composition. Below that, a small green scroll appears. This swatch of color – the only portion of the rug to feature any sort of detail work – is suggestive of the rug being folded or unfolded. Below this is a swarthy ivory patch, evocative of the floor – or a of a second layer of carpet. Beautifully balanced, this antique carpet showcases the finer points of Chinese minimalism and Art Deco experimentation. A distinct work, this vintage Chinese Art Deco rug is an elegantly worked composition.
