Carpets have been made there since at least the early 17th century for local sale and for use in mandarin and aristocratic houses in China proper. Almost all of the larger antique pieces exported in the late 19th-early 20th century were Ningxia in origin and there were literally thousands of them—Ningxia carpets are really the only antique Chinese type to be available to the collector in numbers. Ningxia rugs are woven in virtually any format: large square audience (‘throne’) carpets; long and narrow kang carpets; pillar rugs; saddle rugs; chair seats and backs; and monastery meditation hall runners. The pattern range is similarly broad, but overall repeating textile patterns tend to be earlier (17th century) while medallions, often with lion dogs surrounded by cloud-wreaths, are somewhat later (18th and later centuries). Dragons often appear on chair covers, usually on yellow grounds.. All of our antique rugs are sold with a 7 day no question return so you have time to see it in all lighting settings in your home.
