Silk on silk - China - Second half 20th century

Shangri-La unique Chinese carpet, silk, new

Sublime and unique Chinese carpet, bought personally 20 years ago in the niche carpet shop; Shangri-La in Shanghai.
At the time, I paid $2,000. The value has increased over the years.
It has never been used, nor put on the floor, nor hung on the wall. Always stored in its original packaging, away from the sun and all harmful substances, etc. This particular model was a limited edition, almost impossible to find. Entirely made of fine silk, it shines in daylight and has a unique shine. It would be a shame to put it on the floor, most of these carpets are to be hung on the walls with spotlights on both sides.
So, brand new, no damage, really nice. The colours are a soft spring green and complementary colours.
Please make an offer. You can see it at my home in Belgium or send it by post, in a carefully packed box. Dimensions: 200 x 136 cm
