Art Deco Chinese rugs were produced from the 1910s to the 1940s. Prior to the 1920s, during the experimental stages of production, the design and color remained similar to classical antique Chinese Rugs. After the 1920s began the experimentation with vibrant colors and drifting away from the characteristic two-toned contrasting colors.
The most recognizable rugs were made by Walter Nichols, an American who set up factories in China. Nichols' rugs are usually made of wool and silk have a thick plushy and luxurious feel. They are designed with both medallion as well as all-over formats. Frequently design elements include pictorial scenes, trees, clouds, mountains, dragons, birds and exotic flowers. Colors are very lively and energetic, rich jewel tones of magenta, turquoise, emerald, ruby and violet are common.
