Peacocks, hares, exotic birds, animals and lush botanical arabesques flank the field of this formal Art Deco rug woven in China during the turn of the 20th century.
Large Oversized Vintage Chinese Art Deco Rug, Country of Origin: China, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – Saturated jewel-tone accents offset the stately muted blue field, which is decorated with a serpentine arabesque and Indo-Oriental vine-scrolls. Unlike Persia’s Mahi pattern that often resembles a jumping fish, this Art Deco vintage rug goes one step further incorporating peacocks, birds, frogs and colorful fish into a lush arabesque decorated with pendulous fruits and delicately branching flowers. Formal banner scrolls and arching trellises flanked by hares enclose the edges of the spiraling arabesque while retaining a great deal of open space within the center of the field. Ornate architectural borders decorated with ogival arches and three-dimensional cube motifs form an elegant counterchange pattern using a regal combination of cool jewel tones that are perfectly suited to the Art Deco style.
