Captivating Chinese - 1920s Antique Peking Rug - Oriental Carpet - 3'2" x 5'8" ft
Size: 3'2" x 5'8" ft
Hundreds and thousands of Chinese rugs made in China were sold during the period of 1923-1932, in many different qualities, in scores of sizes. Old type Chinese rugs were from quite finely woven to very coarsely woven (many of those in museums are very, very coarse), and they had the short pile but never the heavy, tight, compact nap of the best of the modern Chinese rugs. Generally, blue and tan colors were used in this era. Antique Chinese rugs are remarkable, and worthy of the closest inspection. Antique wool rugs woven in China are very scarce, and because of this, and for their historical interest as well as their uniqueness and attractiveness, they bring large prices.
Fair condition! No stains, no odor. Sides and ends original. Low pile with minor worn areas - as shown in pictures.
