Shabby Chic Distressed Vintage Chinese Carpet

$5,362.09

About

Distinguished by a large central element obtained from a stylization of the 'Shou' Chinese ideogram, symbolizing infinity, this glorious carpet is further characterized by a soft taupe background with touches of soft lilac, where the pattern has softly faded over time. This is particularly noticeable in the Greek fret border as well as in the stylized dragon element in the corner. The distressed condition does not detract from the usability of this carpet, resulting in a very elegant weaving that speaks of timeless beauty.
