6. 
Seating mat with longevity pattern
Ningxia
Northern China
Qing Dynasty
Kangxi period (1662-1722)
70 x 60 cm (27.5 x 23.5 in.)


Knot count: 7 H x 6 V = 42 kpsi
Colours: rose, dark blue, light blue, light yellow, tan (5)
Condition: scattered areas of wear. Missing outer guard stripe at lower end and part of the border at the upper end.
Notes: The angular drawing of the longevity pattern coupled with the austerity of the greek fret border are characteristic features for seating mats dating to the earliest phase of the Qing dynasty. These often do not display the typical corroded brown outer border. This piece surfaced mysteriously in northern India.
