The calm and sureness is radiated from this rare oversize antique Art Deco Chinese rug from the 1st quarter of the 20th century. The rug would bring in elegance through it understatement. The dark blue field is framed by a narrow border that has simple tree branches and medallions design in rich gold color. The grace and simplicity in the design and use of colors in the rug bring to mind the design of the pebble meditation gardens of Japan and China. Minimal but beautiful.
