Favourite Item
China, 1st half 19th century. The centre medallion is formed by a large Shou character (for longevity), surrounded by a circle of bats (a symbol of happiness and joy, but also associated with wealth and honour) and cloud bands on an apricot ground. A beautifully drawn frettered dragon, the most powerful symbol of good fortune, occupies each corner of the otherwise sparsely decorated field. A simple reciprocal key border is enclosed by a meandering lotus flower main border. A very impressive carpet
Very minor repairs, overall excellent condition
