Antique Art Deco Chinese Oriental Rug 8’0” X 9’10” #8159


Age: circa 1920 

Size: 8’0” X 9’10”


This circa 1920 handmade wool Art Deco Chinese Oriental Rug measures 8’0” X 9’10”. It has a golden yellow brown field and an extremely interesting layout. There is a dragon at every corner looking out. In the middle of the rug there is a circular medallion consisting of two circling birds. The field is covered in Buddhist iconography such as the scroll, the inkpot, the fish and a few bats for luck. There are two minor borders. One is the pearl design on a medium blue ground and the other has a Greek key design on a grey ground. The major border has repeated images of Mogwa in blue, ivory and rust on a lilac ground. This rug is in good condition for its age. I’ve never owned a Chinese rug quite like this. It is very interesting and unique. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $125.00.
