An early 20th century Bessarabian carpet, the vertically abrashed brown field with an allover pattern of enlarged floral bouquets issuing from leafy salmon-colored cartouches.

The Bessarabian nomenclature relates to a group of nineteenth century carpets and flat weaves or antique kilim rugs made in the mountainous Carpathian region between the Ukraine and Moldova. Although little is known about the circumstances or workshops where these European Rugs and flat weaves were fashioned, the output shows a synthesis of local folk motifs and designs inspired by eighteenth century French carpetspopular at the Russian Court and in aristocratic circles.
