Peking Chinese Rug
circa 1900 Antique Peking Chinese Oriental Rug measures 9’2” X 11’7” (280 x
356 cm). It has a very nice café au lait field with scattered images of
Buddhist iconography such as a pair of beribboned scrolls, the chess board,
a pair of books, and a brush pot with brushes. The four corners are worked
in a very pleasant rendition of a blue flower pot on a table containing
foliage in shades of silver and shades of blue. Beneath there is a covered
urn and an incense burner which are to the side of a complicated
conglomeration of a four legged table upon which rests a blue pillow upon
which is standing a golden colored bird, upon which is standing another bird
in two shades of blue with the head of a dragon clutching what appears to be
a wall sconce from which dangles a lantern with wind chimes and upon the
very top is resting a basket with a long blue handle. The minor border is
about 8 inches wide and contains a basket of flowers, a cup, a hash marked
‘Shou’ meaning good luck and prosperity, and a butterfly. The designs
continue all around the border of the rug. The major border has a dark blue
ground and contains pots of flowers, tables with floral decorations, and a
mirror. This rug is in excellent condition. It is full pile with very soft
wool. The age, size and condition are all very nice. It’s the hat trick! The
ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the
shipping with insurance of $150.
