An early 20th century C.F.A. Voysey-designed rug, the blue field with a dense pale polychrome trellis of controlled curving vines, blue and green leaves and red blossoms within a continuous dark blue geometric floral spray border. Born in England, C.F.A. Voysey was a leader of the Arts and Crafts movement, who had a great influence on his contemporaries. Early in his career as a designer and architect, Voysey primarily designed textiles and wallpaper. Among the retailers and manufacturers of his rug designs were Morton's (Donegal rugs), Tomkinson and Adam, Yates & Co., and Heal's department store.
