Early Chinese Ningxia Seat

Description

This early Chinese Ningxia seat is a very harmonious, well balanced weaving.
The roundel in the centre with the five swastika is echoed in the fretted pattern of the spandrels. (There is a clear similarity to the spandrels in the large Ningxia carpet on our website, see https://www.christopherleggeorientalcarpets.com/products/view/chinese-ningxia-carpet/ ). The central circle is surrounded by four large off-white lotus flowers which are connected by elegantly swerving tendrils in two shades of blue.
The dye, probably log wood, has faded from its original red to this delicate, yellow-brown hue typical of Ningxia weavings of this age.
The square is in full pile, and the sides have been replaced.

Height: 65.50cm (25.79 inches)
Width: 62.50cm (24.61 inches)
