Antique "Pao Tao" Peking Rug, China, early twentieth century - Straddling the line between ornament and pictorial imagery, a leafy trees emerge from a mountain top at either end of the field of this lovely antique Peking. Deer stand next to the tree while birds alight on the branches. Classic Chinese running dog and fretwork borders enclose the field. The rich boldness of the design is offset by the cool subdued palette of dark and light blues and tan.
