Peking

Peking rugs share certain characteristics with those made in Tienstin, the nearly port. They date fro the Ching dynasty 1644-1911, and are of good quality.Typically, Peking rugs feature symbolic motifs and medallions, such as the shou character, and also Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian motifs, as well as floral designs. Motifs are not normally joined by linking patterns, but they float independently on the field color.The Peking workshops began to decline in the 1920's, when the American fashion for chinoiserie faded.
