Discover the rich history of Antique Peking Rugs, a tradition that found its roots in China shortly after the conclusion of the First World War. During this era, Chinese rug weaving factories underwent a significant shift, relocating from regions like Ningxia to the heart of China, the capital city of Peking. Peking rugs retained elements of traditional patterns inherited from Ningxia production, but they also began to evolve. At times, the designs became simpler and more asymmetrical, reflecting modern Western Art Deco influences. The weaving technique was adjusted to create thicker and tighter rugs, enhancing their durability for Western use. Our fabulous Antique Peking Chinese Carpet, measuring 5'3" x 7'9", is a testament to this transformation. It's a versatile piece that can seamlessly grace any room in your house. The natural tan and blue colors, combined with the elegant yet uncluttered design of vases and flowers at the center and around the border, exude timeless beauty. In very good condition, with wear consistent with its age and use, this antique Peking rug is attractively priced, making it an enticing addition to your home. It's not just a floor covering; it's a piece of history that bridges the East and West, embodying the fusion of tradition and modernity. As you welcome this rug into your space, you embrace the legacy of craftsmanship and artistry that has transcended borders and time.
