An early 20th century Art Deco rug. An elongated octagon with an anthracite border conceals a geometric mirage in cool colors. The central part of the composition is a rectangle in a true Art Deco style. Delicate beige forms the background for the mysterious crimson elements that are a prominent feature of the medallion. The crimson appears also in the outer part of this vintage rug. A harmoniously divided space is filled both with remarkable colors and exceptional forms of rectangles and stripes. The linear and triangular accents altogether add a pinch of pungency. Right there the unique character of this carpet is hidden.
