78314 Antique Chinese Art Deco Rug, 08'10 x 11'07.
This hand knotted wool antique Chinese Art Deco rug features an all-over floral pattern festooned with large, glorious sprays of flowers. Lotuses, peonies, chrysanthemums, and plum blossoms elegantly spread across the composition, breaking across the borders and field, creating a sense of splendor and vitality than cannot be contained. A decorative lantern hangs from a nearby branch, while small butterflies flutter about. An arrangement of flowering vases and urns adorns the bottom corner. A lovely bamboo frame encloses the composition. The interplay between the piece’s decorative elements gives the composition a great deal of movement and visual interest. As with most Chinese carpets, the various motifs are not only beautiful but carry a great deal of meaning. Bamboo symbolizes endurance, strength, and good luck; butterflies represent happiness; and vases symbolize harmony. The combination of the bounty of rich cultural symbolism and a sumptuous color palette makes for a deeply layered and refined piece.
