Peking Chinese Rug
circa 1890 Peking Chinese antique Oriental Rug measures 100 X 160 (305 x
487 cm). Miles of blue! This rug has an indigo field containing a circular
central medallion in rusty brown with a table with floral decorations, a
flower pot containing a flowering tree and a pot of tea. It is simple but
elegant. How Chinese. The very simple design consists of Buddhist
iconographies sa the brush pot with brushes, the scroll, and the beribboned
book. The corners are each worked in a tall vase on a table containing a
floral motif and a short vase on a table with floral motifs. The entire rug
is encompassed with a major border in rust with meandering flowers and vines
and floral motifs. The minor border in camel hair contains half rondels in
rust, blue and ivory filled with floral designs. The entire rug is enclosed
with a four inch wide border in the same color as the field. The rug is
essentially full pile with slight oxidation in the brown. In this type of
rug, if the brown is not oxidized it is not old. The rug is made with the
finest wool that money could buy at the time. It is unbelievably soft and
luxurious. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The
buyer pays the shipping including insurance of $150.
