Chinese Deco rug from the second quarter of the 20th century.
This stunning rug features a design composed of screens containing fanciful vignettes on a bright raspberry-pink ground. The screens are alternatingly green, yellow and mauve, and contain scenes with flowers, plants, and animals. A border with a scrolling vine of flowers frames the design. Note the beautifully intense cobalt blue field of the screens and plain outer border, a real stunner.
In very good condition, signs of wear consistent with age. Some pile wear in the center of the rug. Low pile, with a very sturdy handle.
