Antique Peking, Northeast China, early twentieth centuryWhile Chinese carpets can often be very spare or minimal in their approach to design, those with absolutely no design at all are extremely rare. This supremely elegant antique Peking carpet has a field that consists only of a soft sandy maize color. Its interest resides in the depth and warmth of the tonality and in the lustrous quality of the wool. As such it is a remarkably flexible decorative piece providing the richness of a carpet with a virtually limitless decorative flexibility.
