This lively and exciting vintage French Deco carpet offers an unusual European reinterpretation of the classic Chinese design.
Fun and Whimsical Chinese Influenced Vintage French Art Deco Rug, Country Of Origin: France, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – What looks at first like an abstract central medallion is in reality a pair of writhing dragons on this striking vintage rug that is a French interpretation of an antique Chinese carpet. In the same way, four more dragons at the outer extremes of the field serve as latent corner- pieces, while the intervening field is filled by floating clouds. The lovely pastel coloration in soft blues, yellows, greens and apricot set against a mauve ground provides the perfect balance for the graphic delicacy of the design.
