This Peking Chinese rug was handwoven in Eastern China during the turn of the 20th century.
This classic peking rug features a central pagoda with auspicious symbols of radishes and prunus branches woven in ivory, beige, browns and pinks on the deepindigo field. The softer blue border features floral motifs which grow into the main field.
