Vintage Aubusson (Size Adjusted) BB7295 12'2" × 18'1" $50,000
This French antique rug is an example of Aubusson weaving craft reaching back to the 18th century. The rug, created circa 1920, carries a cartouche-like garland of flowers, fruits and ribbons against a warm brown background. In contrast to traditional Aubusson designs, this one does not have multiple borders, spandrels or a central medallion – the main field is empty, the lush garland is the only ornament. The size of the Aubusson rug is adjusted. The color palette features muted tones of brown, green, yellow and orange.
The antique rug was made by hand of high-quality wool in accordance with the traditional Aubusson tapestry technique. Due to careful execution, it survived until this day in excellent condition and will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear, provided minimal maintenance.
