The Aubusson rugs for sale, Creuse commune of France is renowned for tapestry manufacture. Typically, oldest European carpet depended on engravings as a design source or the full-scale cartoons from which the low-warp tapestry-weavers worked. Figures were set against a conventional background of verdure, stylized foliage and vignettes of plants on which birds perch and from which issue glimpses of towers and towns. Even today, the center in Aubusson, under control of the French Ministry of Arts, is producing antique carpets and rugs of the most exquisite quality.(SOLD)
