French Art Deco Midcentury Green, Red and Yellow Handwoven Wool Rug BB6271 6'0" × 7'0" $22,000
An early 20th century Art Deco European 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 antique carpet is hidden.
Although younger than antique rugs, large vintage rugs are still one of the most sought-after kinds of woven goods.
