In 1924 W.A.B Nichols of Tientsin North China introduced the Super Chinese Rug which became world famous. It is known for its durability, beauty, and stunning ability to catch light. A special finishing wash traditional with Nichols rugs makes this piece easy to clean, soft and pliable with a silky sheen. Great antiquity and design couple with peculiarity and unique characteristics that have been retained for centuries, making each Nichols carpet a surviving evidence of an historical past. Sourced for Mona Moore by the Rug Affair.
