Description of the pattern from the antique book " "CHINESE RUG :This large Chinese carpet represents some of the best workmanship of the Keen-lung period. In it are shown the graceful drawing of leaf,fruit, flower, and butterfly, and the dainty colouring of blue, yellow,brown, and apricot on a field of ivory that are so characteristic of this time. The usual balance of designs throughout the field is maintained with precision; but, as is not always the case, different motives occupy corresponding positions. Thus a cluster of leaves and fruit may bebalanced with a cluster of leaves and flowers. The conventional draw-ing of the corners and the somewhat formal panel that surrounds the central medallion give to the pattern strength of character while they detract nothing from its beauty." source : Title: Oriental rugs, antique and modern Year: 1922 (1920s) Authors: Hawley, W. A. (Walter Augustus), 1863-1920 Subjects: Rugs, Oriental Publisher: New York, Dodd, Mead
