This circa 1930 Peking Chinese Oriental Rug (#7579) measures 9’2” x 11’9” (280 x 362 cm). This is a very interesting rug. Describing it from the bottom up we see the dragon and phoenix back to back who are the parents of the Chinese Zodiac creatures. Above them is a three legged table in Wedgewood blue holding a teal blue urn which is flanked by other urns in the same color. The center urn contains a large flowering tree which covers the entire field. It is done in several shades of blue, ivory, peach and purple. All very pale colors. The field rises up in the form of an arch flanked by rusty red spandrels containing more flowers. The field is a very beautiful color of pink which is not an easy color to find in these rugs. The entire outer border is coal black. The rug is very striking! This rug is in essentially perfect condition. It is full pile. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance - See more at: http://www.antiqueorientalrugs.com/CLOSEUP%20PAGES/7579%20Peking%20Chine...
