'Chindia' Rug and a Running Dog

 

'Chindia' at one point in time was a trademark of Pande Cameron, although many importers would commission similar style carpets.  The overall design of this rug is an Indian (Indo)interpretation of a Chinese Peking/Deco carpet.  Generally, the motif will feature butterflys in the border, old Chinese design elements and a dotted, inner minor guard border which is often referred to as a 'Pearl' border.  This type of carpet was fairly coarse in knot density, perhaps in the vicinity of 36 kpsi, very thick, plush pile, and more often than not, carved.  Colors were usually limited to fewer than 5, with many analogous tones and a larger, more open field.  This particular variety of carpets were primarily woven in the very late 1960's through late 1970's, and are among the more sought after by 'vintage' shoppes.  It's not uncommon to find a 9'x12' in new condition around $900 or less, depending on condition, location and type of seller.
