Notes: 
A royal color that no ordinary people were allowed to use ... The style is very Manchurian, the invaders that created the last Dynasty in China, so it reflects the over saturated color palette they preferred, which is in contrast to the Han Chinese style that is prevalent in black & white Shanshui Painting. This wonderful Art Deco carpet was made in China, circa 1910s or 1920s. Walter Nichols was great American rug producer (the Art Deco rugs which he did not originate them) in Tientsin. The rugs made of wool and silk with bold vibrant colors and the pattern are pictorial scenes and trees, birds, clouds, mountains, dragons, butterfly and flowers. The production of Art Deco rugs started from 1910s-1950s and mostly with western influence.
