Vintage Deco Rug BB2286
Vintage Deco Rug Description:
An early 20th century Art Deco antique carpet, with the solid oatmeal field dominated in the upper third by a dark brown area with oatmeal specks and with a bold zigzag edge.
European art deco rugs for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, antique decorative vintage area rugs were a sought-after status symbol demonstrating wealth and good taste. Watch any period film set in the late 19th or early 20th centuries and you will almost certainly see an oriental rug for sale on the floor.
