Antique Geometric Chinese Rug with Polychrome Lozenges

$14,999.19

About

A fine Peking type carpet woven by an honeycomb arrangement of polychrome lozenges with an almost random color distribution. Carpets of this type are representative of an early 20th century 'Minimalist or Abstract' style which seems to characterize a cluster of Chinese weavings of the period, also seen on the simple forms and decoration of some ceramic vessels. Chinese Modernism extends itself to various media, ranging from furniture to objects, and is indicative of an adaptation of Chinese traditional forms to new color ways and iconographies.
