Notes: 
A perfect condition art deco Chinese Peking quality with Manchester wool and open blue field. Antique Peking rugs started in China shortly after the end of the First World War. During this period, Chinese rug weaving factories relocated from Ningxia, as well as other carpet weaving centers, to the Chinese capital. Peking rugs could adhere to the traditional patterns derived from Ningxia production. But at times the designs became simpler and asymmetrical, often tending toward modern western Art Deco taste, and the weaving technique became thicker and tighter to make the rugs more durable for western use.
