77364 Distressed antique Chinese rug with Traditional chinoiserie style. This hand knotted wool distressed antique Chinese rug features a subtle all-over fretwork pattern spread across an abrashed blue field. In written Chinese, the Wan character means “ten thousand,” but over time has become a symbol of wealth and prosperity. In this piece, the classic fret and meander pattern incorporates interconnected Wan motifs in a winding pattern. With these repetitions, the meaning of the Wan expands to include not just wealth and prosperity, but long life and never ending joy as well. The fabulous complementary border expertly mimics the pattern of the field and features the Kuilong motif, also known as the archaic dragon pattern, which consists of abstract geometric dragons interwoven in a continuous twisting design. Seen as possessing unrivaled power, strength, and nobility, the dragon is perhaps the most beloved symbol in Chinese culture. The combination of the elegant composition, timeless color palette of blue and cream, and rich cultural history of the design elements make for a deeply layered and sophisticated piece. This distressed antique Chinese rug would be a truly wonderful addition to any interior.
