Early-Mid 19th C. Antique Chinese Rug, perhaps Hotan Origin. The tightness of this, the wool quality as well as the low knot count dates this older piece. Unusual motif of rough cut, almost jagged peonies of various sizes and chinese influence. I havent taken off the border but the wavery shape looks to be cut. It would look quite dramatic in a frame. Rugs are art and when these detailed simplistic pieces (especially if fragments) are put in a frame, they become study pieces. cheap mid level
