Vintage Swedish Pile Rug by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom BB3450
Vintage Swedish Pile Rug by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom Description:
Tree in Flower pile rug designed by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, inspired by an antique Bakshaish antique rug from Persia having a sand and cream field with an unusually geometric flowering vine trellis in brown, pale green, brown, blue and peach within a pale celadon border with grid motifs and geometric vinery.
Although the designs of antique and vintage Scandinavian rugs were originally inspired by imported textiles, they gradually developed into an innately northern expression. Simple geometric patterns and vignettes from everyday life such as bouquets of flowers, a child's sampler or a pet dog were incorporated into flat woven tapestries or Swedish pile rugs for sale and carpets, adding charm and immediacy to this folk art. A fresh and appealing aesthetic was sustained during the first half of the twentieth century by the weavings of the celebrated Swedish carpet designer Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom and her circle. The simplicity and purity of design in Vintage oriental rugs gives them an immediate relevance and contemporary desirability.
