Antique Chinese Rugs and Carpets as opposed to most of the antique rug productions were woven almost exclusively for internal consumption. Since they were mostly sheltered from European and western influences, this offers us the reason why these carpets have a very unique truly ethnically Chinese look and appeal. Only during the early part of the 19th century did they open their markets to the countries of the west (for rugs – they have been exporting porcelain, bronzes, wooden and other works of art for many years prior to the 19th century). It is during this period (the early 1900′s and on) that we see a major and unmistakable change in the production, abandoning the traditional ornamental look to a more open and even Chinese Art Deco design. Rich in culture, history and folklore Chinese carpets incorporate design almost never seen in any other type of rug. Dragons, local art and ornamental objects are almost always a trademark of these productions.
