77626 Antique Chinese Art Deco Rug, 08'11 x 11'05.
This hand knotted wool antique Chinese Art Deco rug features a color-blocked field and border scheme festooned with asymmetrical opulent frondescence and florals breaking across the borders and field, creating a sense of splendor and vitality than cannot be contained. The lustrous red field displays an intricate floral vase in the lower left corner and a complementary array of florals in the upper right opposite corner. This ensemble of flowers, when appearing together, represents the Four Seasons, while each of the flowers carries its own meaning in Chinese culture.
The lotus, the flower of summer, symbolizes purity and perfection, since its clean vibrant blooms emerge from the mud of swamps and marshes. Peonies, the flower of spring, represent unparalleled beauty and honor; they have long been regarded as a symbol of wealth. Chrysanthemums, the flower of autumn, are associated with long life and a golden retirement; the dried petals of the flower immersed in wine were once thought to bring longevity to those who drank it. Plum blossoms, the flower of winter, represent fortitude and resilience, since the long-lived tree blooms brightly during the cold of winter. With its depth of meaning, fine detailing, and overall sense of harmony and bliss, this antique Chinese Art Deco rug would be a lovely addition to any interior.
