Antique Chinese Peking Carpet

The Antique Chinese Peking Carpet is a finely woven piece with a rich history. Originating in the Peking (Beijing) region of China during the 19th and 20th centuries, these carpets employed techniques similar to those used in Persia, India, and Central Asia. They were crafted from sheep’s wool, sometimes incorporating silk, goat, or camel hair. The color palette was limited, often featuring royal blue, yellow, light blue, apricot, and black. Notable motifs included dragons symbolizing power and lotus flowers representing purity. During the Art Deco era, Western influence impacted Chinese rug design. In summary, Antique Chinese Peking Carpets are sought-after for their cultural motifs and craftsmanship.
