  • Notes:
  • Antique Art Deco Chinese rugs were produced from the 1910’s to the 1940’s. Prior to the 1920’s, during the experimental stages of production, the design and color remained similar to classical antique carpets from China. After the 1920’s began the experimentation with vibrant colors and drifting away from the characteristic two-toned contrasting colors. These Art Deco designed rugs were made in China during the 1920’s and 1930’s. The most recognizable Chinese Deco rugs were made by Walter Nichols, an American who set up factories in China. The most prolific weaving center was in Tientsin where the designs tended to be more open and spacious than Oriental rugs. Nichols’ rugs are usually made of wool and silk and have a thick plushy and luxurious feel. Chinese art deco rugs are designed with both medallion as well as all-over formats. Frequently design elements include pictorial scenes, trees, clouds, mountains, dragons, birds and exotic flowers. Colors are very lively and energetic, rich jewel tones of magenta, turquoise, emerald, ruby and violet are common.
