A Chinese Pao-Tu Carpet hand knotted in China between 1940 and 1960. This rug features a classic floral design of fronds, flowers and medallions within the main area and rug borders. The largest medallion sits in the centre of the carpet, with rich blue and brown-gold tones used to form the rug’s decorative patterns, contrasted against a cream ground colour.
Chinese Pau Tu/Pao Tu Rugs are decorative rugs adorned with various symbols, from dragons and cranes to fronds and medallions. The rugs are usually made of wool and often have floral design features. This rug was handmade in wool by skilled weavers, and this has made the rug durable and soft to the touch. This piece is in good overall condition but does have moderate wear to the pile and fringes, as well as light staining. The rug can be professionally cleaned, and fringes secured as additional work to the piece - if this additional work is of interest, do contact us for further information.
This classic Vintage Chinese Pau Tu Carpet is a versatile addition to both traditional and contemporary decors. The large rug would sit well in dining rooms, bedrooms and living rooms.
