Vintage Oriental Chinese Art Deco, 1920's, one of a pair A scalloped border of dark brown encloses a golden sand field on this exquisitely subtle and restrained antique Oriental Chinese Art Deco rug. At first the field appears empty or open, but it is actually covered by a tone-on-tone design of scrolls and cloudbands emanating inward from the outer edges. In their sinuous rhythms they echo the scalloped forms of the border and continue its visual effects across the carpet in a more subdued manner. This carpet testifies to the masterful design sensibilities of Chinese weavers as they made the transition into the modern world.
