Art Deco Era Nichols Rug, Rust Ground with Floral Motif, ca 1920s

$465.00 USD


This beautiful rug is in excellent vintage condition; I can find no flaws other than a few tiny areas where the white knots are coming through the pile. Measuring approximately 2by 4', this rug is composed of 100%wool fibers and a cotton backing.

Be sure to note the still vibrant colors: green, pink, mint, yellow, orange, purple and maroon on a rust ground. Note, too, the appraised value of $725.

This type of rug was produced in China from the early 1900s to the early 1930s by Walther Nichols. Nichols founded his company, “Nichols Super Yarn and Carpets” in 1924 in Tianjin, North China. These rugs were woven with solid, top quality wool pile with cotton foundations. Their designs were modern with minimal Chinese elements. Nichols rugs were heavily influenced by the Art Deco era and were created using a beautiful mix of colored wool fibers that were blended to create a style that is still highly sought after today.

This iconic rug is a prime example of usable Art Deco textile art; it is sure to be the focal point of and/or enhance your vintage or contemporary decor.
