A second quarter 20th century Viennese carpet, the rich orange open field with a bold geometric vinery design with the purple, orange and blue striated centerpiece linked to an similar inner border within a dense linear outer border.
Decorative vintage rugs for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey.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 European art deco 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 antique carpet on the floor.
