As described by Sandra Whitman Antique & Old Chinese Rug

Tibetan tsukruk. This sleeping mat, or coverlet, was woven on a portable loom in five strips which were then sewn together. The pattern features pairs of beautifully drawn clouds in white and two tones of blue, on a bright red ground. The style of the clouds is similar to early Chinese simple line drawings of Taoist and Buddhist landscape scenes. Made between 1900 and 1940. Hand-looped structure, with wool pile on a cotton foundation.

About the Seller

Sandra Whitman Antique & Old Chinese Rug

The inventory includes decorative and collectable rugs/textiles from the Ming dynasty to the Republic period. Chinese rug making is a practical art form undertaken to create coverings for floors, seats, and other objects. The gallery is a resource for the collector but understands that rugs are made to be used.
