Their rugs arc unique, individual and unmistak able. But at least one characteristic of Chinese art is lacking in them the grotesque figures which occur in so many other Chinese productions. Most people do not regret this. The trellis or fret is frequently used as a ground for decorative devices. Bats, butterflies, animal designs, all of them symbolic, arc typical of Chi nese designs, together with the lotus and other floral decorations. Yellows of a varying cast, tawny golden or fawn, golden brown, pink, salmon pink, taupe, blue are the colors most frequently used. This Chinese collection of ours is the largest we have over had, and we can say with confidence that the rugs arc of good reliable quality and at remark ably low prices. No more interesting study in con trasts can be imagined than to com pare them with the Persian and Caucasian pieces which arc here in such wonderful choice.
