Antique French Aubusson Rug BB7545 8'2" × 11'2" $10,000

$10,000

French Aubusson rugs are considered the crème de la crème of all European carpets – Louis XIV’s influential Prime Minister Colbert made sure of that by establishing a long and hard apprenticeship necessary to obtain the title “Master of Tapestry”.

This antique Aubusson rug clearly shows what is the reason behind this wide-spread recognition. Created in the first half of the 20th century, the piece boasts a classy architectural and botanical design. The sage field carries an overall architecturally-formed tile design formed of pale pink bands with rosettes at the intersections and containing flowerheads formed by curving leaves within a sage outer border.

In terms of workmanship, the antique French rug meets all the expectations of a conscious buyer. Its body was carefully hand-knotted out of the finest wool in accordance with traditional Aubusson techniques. If properly maintained, the piece will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
