This circa 1850 very Antique Peking Chinese rug measures 8’10” x 11’5”. It has a dark blue to indigo vine design with ivory flowers completely covering the light blue field. The center medallion is an ivory dragon surrounded by lotus blossoms. There are four circles formed by two cranes facing each other with their wings outspread. The border is meandering vines with lotus blossoms in two shades of blue and ivory on a very pale almost ivory peach ground. The rug is 75% full pile. All the wear has been carefully photographed. It is confined to three of the four quadrants. I believe there was once a table with chairs sitting there. This rug is truly fabulous. One doesn’t often get a chance to buy a rug of this age and type. The shipping charge to the buyer is $150.
