This second half 19th century Kansu measures 4’4” x 6’0”. It has a mocha field and major border which is very rare for this type of rug. The field has a full on red headed crane with his wings spread out behind him. This depiction of a crane leans to 17th-century. The field is the so-called coin design. The corners are Chinese fretwork with a large chrysanthemum. The minor borders are pearl motif on a navy ground; meandering S’s in ivory on a navy ground; and the minor border is an extension of the field motif on the same color ground. The blue outer border is missing across the top and bottom. There is a $.50 size hole in the top of the field by the pearl border, as visible in the picture. This is a very, very interesting rug. The last one I had that looked like this had a yellow field, was a 6ft x 9ft and sold for over $30,000. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $75.
