This hand-painted carpet design provides a glimpse at the artistic process behind the Art Deco rugs produced in China in the 1920s and ‘30s. Half sketch, half painting, the composition symmetrically arranges bamboo boughs on an open field, keeping with the refined minimalism that captivated consumers in China and abroad. The carpet design was developed for H.C. Augustesen, one of many foreign manufacturers lured to Tientsin, China to produce rugs for clamoring markets in Europe and America.
