Item Description

Mid 20th Mongolian Carpet

4.04 x 2.76 m

Though very few antique examples have survived, the tradition of Mongolian carpet weaving goes back many centuries, inspired in part by the designs of Chinese textiles, borrowing certain characteristic designs, including images of tigers, Buddhist motifs, and infinite knots, though set apart by their more dynamic, creative use of colour, and the exceedingly high quality of their wool.

This carpet dates to the 1940s, and features a dragon design - often associated with water, thunder, and the power of nature - over a light silver-grey ground, and framed by a wide border. Despite incorporating traditional decorative motifs, it still has a distinct mid-century modern feel, with its restrained palette and open composition, well suited to a contemporary interior.

This example is in excellent condition with a soft, lustrous wool.

A unique and rare piece, to complement a tasteful setting.
