This circa 1910 Art Deco Chinese Oriental Rug measures 9’6” x 11’3” (292 x 344 cm). It has a deep dark bing cherry red field which has contains six floral sprigs in three colors of blue with yellow, gold and brown surrounding a medallion consisting of a peacock with its tail spread in the center of a floral wreath. The corners are done in a floral motif in the midst of which is a yellow urn containing flowers. The entire rug is encompassed with a double border in two colors of blue. The inner lighter blue border consists of blossoms and butterflies. The outer major border in dark blue consists of cartouches containing various scenes such as pagodas, a water feature and floral motifs. The cartouches are separated with various designs such as pots, urns, flower pots on stands and bamboo urns with Chinese hash marks. These hash marks are very unusual. Of the 1000’s of Chinese rugs I have owned maybe only 3-4 have Chinese writing. This rug is 99% full pile and the wool is like velvet. The wear is confined to a place ½ the size of my hand in the lower right corner and an area the same size in the upper right corner and a place about 12” x 6” in the upper left corner. Please see the photos. The ends and sides are complete. The rug is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $150.
