Square Antique Chinese Rug / 10'4 x 11'5 Rug #3410ML

Regular price $7,200.00

This 1920s Chinese rug, a rare square gem in any collection, is the first for Blue Parakeet Rugs in this shape. This distinct piece has a warm tan field that invites the eye to wander, while the rich apricot border band gracefully frames the entire rug perfectly allowing the motifs to meander where they want. Delicate floral arrangements, decorative fans, and the fluttering presence of birds and butterflies dance across its surface adding a whimsical vibe.

Woven with vegetable-dyed wool of the highest quality, the rug possesses a weighty, velvety texture that hints at its luxurious origins. Its dense knots of wool and sturdy cotton foundation promise durability that defies the passage of time and will stand up to a busy lifestyle with kiddos and pets. This beauty has light, scattered wear, and remains clean and free of stains, preserving its beauty for many years to come.

Believed to be a Fette creation, this rug embodies the spirit of its era. From the experimentation with nature-inspired forms to the daring use of non-traditional colors, it reflects the cultural zeitgeist of the mid-1920s through 1935. As an artifact of history and a work of art, it stands as a reminder of the enduring legacy of Chinese craftsmanship and the American entrepreneurs who played a pivotal role in exporting these rugs to the United States.
