This hand knotted wool antique Chinese Art Deco rug features a color-blocked field and border scheme festooned with large, glorious sprays of flowers.

The colorful, intricate floral motifs showcase lotuses, peonies, chrysanthemums, and plum flowers blossoming in a swirl of tantalizing vinery. 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. In the lower left corner are flowering cloisonné vases, symbolizing peace and tranquility. Floating towards the bottom right side of the field, a small building sits beneath a blossoming tree. On the right side of the composition, a basket of flowers hangs from the branches, which may represent harmony, With its depth of meaning, fine attention to detail, and glorious composition, this stunning antique Chinese Art Deco rug would bring a touch of Jazz Age splendor to any interior.
