About

76766 Early 20th Century Antique Chinese Art Deco Rug Inspired by Walter Nichols 8'09 x 11'05. This hand knotted wool antique Chinese Art Deco rug features a color-blocked field and border scheme festooned with large, glorious sprays of flowers. Lotuses, peonies, chrysanthemums, and plum blossoms elegantly spread across the composition, breaking across the borders and field, creating a sense of splendor and vitality than cannot be contained. The colorful, intricate floral motifs showcase lotuses, peonies, chrysanthemums, and plum flowers blossoming in a swirl of tantalizing vinery. This ensemble of flowers, when appearing together, represents the Four Seasons, while each of the flowers carries its own meaning in Chinese culture. The lotus, the flower of summer, symbolizes purity and perfection, since its clean vibrant blooms emerge from the mud of swamps and marshes. Peonies, the flower of spring, represent unparalleled beauty and honor; they have long been regarded as a symbol of wealth. Chrysanthemums, the flower of autumn, are associated with long life and a golden retirement; the dried petals of the flower immersed in wine were once thought to bring longevity to those who drank it. Plum blossoms, the flower of winter, represent fortitude and resilience, since the long-lived tree blooms brightly during the cold of winter. Two butterflies happily fluttering from flower to flower across the burgundy field. True to ancient Chinese history, butterflies symbolize young love and legend has it the butterfly also represents an undying bond between lovers. A classical Chinese vase abundantly flowing with an array of delicate blossoms resulting in an exceptionally graceful composition.
