SILK ON SILK PICTORIAL 140 LINE HAND KNOTTED RUG – 9.0 x 12.0


Description: Silk on silk, 140-line pictorial rug was hand knotted in China of 100% natural silk. The silk is exceptionally high quality and is very shiny, which makes the color look shaded from different angles. Beautiful colors and made with excellent quality. No holes or repairs, VERY plush and soft, with a gorgeous design. There is some minor staining in 2 small areas. (see pictures) This rug was acquired from a Virginia Estate.

  • Notes: Chinese Silk Rugs are beautiful pieces of Chinese art. China, a country of ancient civilization, is the birthplace of many dazzling arts and crafts, and Chinese handicraft articles found their way into overseas markets as an important medium of exchange with other countries. Chinese silk, following a route known later as the Silk Road, reached the distant Roman Empire along the coast of the Mediterranean in the Han(206BC-AD220) and Tang(168-907) dynasties, and China enjoyed fame as the Land of Silk in the East. Silk carpet making was not a Chinese tradition, but it was born of wool weaving of nomadic tribes. While rugs were being woven in China two thousand years ago, there was not a real industry until the mid-eighteenth century.
