Antique Chinese Picture Rug


Dimensions: 3'1" x 3'0"
Rug #: 36563

Exceptionally unique Peking Pictorial rug from northern China. Rich with symbolism, clouds hold a special place in Chinese culture. Seen as lucky signs, they represent peace, the heavens, and divine favor. Additionally, clouds bring images of happiness and good fortune. This piece was handwoven in the early twentiety century. For its age, it is in very good condition.

For centuries, the art of weaving carpets and textiles has flourished in China, especially in the northern Ningxia region. These exquisite creations eventually captured the attention of Western markets in the early 1900s. To meet this demand, production shifted from the provinces to the capital, then called Peking. This allowed for the creation of larger, more intricate carpets. Interestingly, the designs themselves evolved to become simpler and more asymmetrical, reflecting a shift towards modern Western “Art Deco” tastes in home decor.

PANTONE shades: We do our best to find the closest match to one or multiple colors in the rug. The shade card we choose may not always be the perfect one, but we do our best (it’s a lot of work)! At times we may show multiple shade cards so you can get a better sense of color. Finally, when photographing rugs from the same group (shipment, collection, SKU, etc.) we will often use one or two shade card(s) so that you can get a good sense of the coloration. Hope you enjoy viewing our beautiful rugs!
